Exciting News: Your Weight Matters

YWM2013 Convention badgeI have great news.  Great EXCITING NEWS!

I will be attending the Your Weight Matters 2nd Annual Convention at the Arizona Grand Resort!  It was unfortunate that I could not attend last year, I was sorta busy, busy getting married. It's going to be amazing! EPIC.  So, if you've said to yourself, "Wow, I'd really like to meet this Bariatric Counselor."  Here's you're chance.

Education, Advocacy and Support – Obesity Action Coalition Set to Host 2nd Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention

On August 15-18, 2013, at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) will encourage you to “Rise to the Challenge” and will bring you the most comprehensive educational and advocacy Convention ever experienced. After hosting the Inaugural Your Weight Matters Convention in 2012, the OAC was met with such positivity and enthusiasm that warranted one response – an even better event in 2013.

Weight and health go hand-in-hand; however, few individuals realize how much their weight impacts their health. The Your Weight Matters Convention promises to continue to build from the ground up, a solid, unbiased look at weight, treatment options, weight bias, childhood obesity, nutrition, exercise and more.

In addition to educational sessions, the OAC will host a National Advocacy Training session on Thursday, August 15. The training session will provide an in-depth look at how to become an effective advocate for change and allow those interested to practice advocating with an actual legislator. This session is limited to the first 100 interested attendees.
