National Obesity Care Week (NOCW)
October 7-13, 2018
AMGA is a proud supporter of National Obesity Care Week and encourages members to become involved.

Today, more than 92 million Americans are affected by the disease of obesity. They face weight bias, stigmatization, and a world that misunderstands their disease and how to treat it. Because of this, half of the people with obesity report they have never had a conversation about their weight with a healthcare professional (HCP), and only 4 in 10 patients say they have been counseled about their weight by a HCP.

To help overcome the lack of evidence-based care; the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), The Obesity Society (TOS), the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA), the STOP Obesity Alliance and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) launched National Obesity Care Week in 2015 with a vision to create a society that understands, respects and accepts the complexities of obesity and values science-based care. NOCW plans to achieve this vision through enhanced social media awareness, expanded fact-based understanding, and facilitation of the shift to science-based treatments for those living with obesity.
