National Obesity Care Week was created with a vision to create a society that understands, respects and accepts the complexities of obesity and values science and clinically-based care. We can’t achieve our vision without your support, and have resources below that offer more information, facts and articles for healthcare providers, a person who is affected by obesity or someone who cares for a loved one who is and policy makers. Please feel free to view our resources, and share with others to help change the way that they care about obesity.
