Sign the Open Letter to Congress

Please sign the Obesity Action Coalition and C.H.O.I.C.E. Campaign's Open Letter to Congress. This Open Letter urges Congress to recognize obesity as a disease and support legislation to provide greater access to and acceptance of all effective treatments, including weight-loss surgery. Sign on to the letter and have your voice heard by following this link.


I'd like to also encourage you if you aren't already a member of the Obesity Action Coalition to please consider joining. The OAC is a national non profit organization dedicated to giving a voice to those affected by obesity through education, support & advocacy. The greater the coalition's membership, the stronger our voice on issues. When you walk into a legislator's office to ask them to support a cause, numbers speak. Membership in the OAC makes our voice louder. Here's the 411 on that (you get a great magazine too.)

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~Margaret Mead
