As the OAC continues to keep a close eye on COVID-19, we know that change and uncertainty can make it challenging to manage weight and health. Especially now, we hope you'll turn to OAC for credible education and support, knowing we have your back.

Here's a look at some of the resources we've been sharing this past week and what we're doing to continue advocating on behalf of patients. There's more resources and engagement opportunities on the horizon, so stay tuned through the coming weeks!

During this time, OAC is asking insurance providers to suspend pre-surgical requirements and offer alternative resources to help patients prepare for bariatric surgery.
