News Center

The Obesity Society's News Center is where you'll find not only the latest news about obesity, but also the resources you'll need to be informed about the latest developments in the field. While you are here, check out the latest news releases, fact sheets about obesity-related topics and about the society, and take a look at the digital media in our Media Library.

Before you report, read the Guidelines for Media Portrayals of Individuals with Obesity.
