ASPEN is excited to announce our participation in the 4th Annual National Obesity Care Week (NOCW) which is taking place October 7th – October 13th. NOCW is a national awareness campaign to ensure anyone affected by obesity receives respectful and comprehensive care. Today, more than 90 million adult Americans currently have obesity, and in the last 20 years, obesity rates have doubled among adults. Now, more than ever, people that are affected by obesity or those who care, healthcare professionals and policymakers must examine their personal perspectives and biases related to obesity and take action to treat obesity as the serious and complex disease it is.
ASPEN is proud to join the Campaign, which was founded by The Obesity Society, the Obesity Action Coalition, Strategies to Overcome and Prevent Obesity Alliance and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. We need more voices – your voice – to reach our goal of achieving better care. You can join us and pledge to take action to change the way you care about obesity. Visit www.ObesityCareWeek.org to take action and change the way that we care about obesity.
