Obesity Action Coalition Your Weight Matters Convention 2013

Save the date! August 15 – 18, 2013

The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) Second Annual "Your Weight Matters" Convention is being held this year in Phoenix, Arizona.

August 15 – 18, 2013
Phoenix, Arizona
at the Arizona Grand Hotel


It's going to be a weekend full of educational sessions by the country’s leading experts and thought-leaders in weight, health, fitness and wellness, evidence-based strategies for losing weight and keeping it off, advocacy training, group fitness classes, a chance to renew your commitment to your health with others on the same path, lots of freebies and TONS OF FUN!

The resort itself is awesome! Great rooms and meeting facilities. AAA Four Diamond rated. It's named as one of top destinations for hiking and mountain views by National Geographic magazine, there's a 7-acre water park (Travel Channel's Top 10 in the US), athletic club, spa, golf course, pools and patios. Enjoy the summer sun, soak up the vitamin D and make new friends. If you are bringing the family for some fun in the sun they will love it too.

I'll be there. Come hang out!

The OAC will be unveiling additional 411 on their web site (cost, ticket info, agenda, etc.) in the coming weeks (sign up for email updates) but for now, mark your calendars and make plans to attend!

Follow the OAC on Facebook and on Twitter - the official convention hashtag is #YWM2013 and there is a Facebook Event page where you can RSVP, chat about the event, make friends with other attendees, etc.

and follow me on Facebook and Twitter for updates and info as it comes. I'm serving on the Conference Planning Committee so I'll be chatting about it A LOT.
