Michelle Vicari Honored with the Obesity Action Coalition’s
“Outstanding Membership Recruitment by an OAC Member” Award 
California resident Michelle Vicari was honored with the Obesity Action Coalition’s (OAC) “Outstanding Membership Recruitment by an OAC Member” award during the OAC’s Your Weight Matters Inaugural Convention in Dallas.

As a longtime OAC member, Michelle has been instrumental in strengthening the OAC’s voice by recruiting members. She is also an accomplished blogger. Her blog, “The World According to Eggface,” is extremely popular among individuals battling the disease of obesity.

“It is truly impressive how many of our members know or communicate with Michelle on a regular basis. Michelle has single-handedly solidified the OAC’s membership through her recruitment efforts,” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.

Thank you Obesity Action Coalition and all those that recommended me for this incredible honor. I am a proud member of the OAC, their sole focus is representing individuals affected by obesity through education, advocacy and support. If you are affected by obesity or have loved ones that are affected please join the OAC ($10/yr individual.) There is an African proverb, "Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable."

This is so well-deserved. I know that there are so many times I've turned to your observations, attitude and, yes, recipes to get me through this journey. I can't tell you how many people I've given your website to just for those reasons.

More than congratulations, best and well-deserved recognition!
