Capitol Update

The Monthly Advocacy Newsletter of the Obesity Society

In March 2011, the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), the Obesity Society (TOS), the American Dietetic Association (ADA), and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) formed the "Obesity Care Continuum" or OCC -- a coalition representing the interests of those affected by overweight and obesity and the healthcare professionals and researchers who care for, and develop treatments for, this growing population in our country. The purpose of the OCC is to pool the resources of its member groups and better coordinate federal and state advocacy efforts to secure access to, and coverage of, the continuum of care surrounding the treatment of overweight and obesity. With a combined membership of over 100,000 patient and healthcare professional advocates, the OCC will be a major force in the continuing debate over critical need to both prevent and treat obesity.
