I recently learned about another conference that would be so great to attend. This September 25-28 the Your Weight Matters National Conference is being held in Orlando, Florida.
The conference is hosted by the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC). As a National non-profit organization, the OAC is dedicated to helping the millions of Americans impacted by excess weight and obesity through education, advocacy and support.
The three day conference has over 50 sessions geared to individuals who struggle or are concerned with or those concerned with weight-related issues. Topics vary from the basics of nutrition and treatment options to behavioral health issues like food addition and mindful eating. The speakers are the country’s leading experts on weight and health, dedicated to presenting evidence-based information.
Just like I experienced at Fitbloggin’ there’s a strong fitness component, offering an array of group fitness classes designed for all abilities. You can see the entire agenda HERE.
What is the Cost
The full conference registration fee is $125 which is a bargain for this content packed event. If you can’t attend the entire conference, there are daily options.
Because this is such an important issue and the OAC doesn’t want to exclude anyone, there is a scholarship program for those with financial need. Applications must be submitted by July 25th so get it done now!
I won’t be able to make this conference as I’ll be just returning home from being mother of the groom at my oldest son’s wedding. But I’ll be keeping my eye out on social media to make sure I make the next one. If obesity and healthy weight loss is a topic of interest to you, I hope you strongly consider attending.
If you’re local, at least stop by on Saturday when the expo is free to the public.
Have you ever attended the Your Weight Matters conference?
