It’s Time to Register for #YWM2020VIRTUAL

Every year for the past 7 years people have gathered together from all over the country to get evidence-based strategies for individuals impacted by excess weight and obesity. Real deal education and tools, free from scams and BS from world-renowned experts in their field. The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC)'s Your Weight Matters National Convention is truly an awesome event and I NEVER miss it. For those of you who have had the opportunity to attend it really is an amazing experience and post-pandemic when we are able to travel the country again and hug new friends I highly recommend it. 

While we can't gather in person this year, this July the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) has taken some of the great education and support you'd find at the events and is bringing it to everyone that wants to get a taste of what this OAC event is all about. We've created a FREE (yes, FREE) series of educational events that you can attend all from the comfort and safety of your home with YWM2020Virtual!

If you want to learn more about your health, weight, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, emotional health, and wellness make plans to spend a few days with us in July.
