OCAN Obesity Care Week Congressional Briefing — Obesity Care, COVID and Communities of Color
Please join the Obesity Care Advocacy Network, as a part of Obesity Care Week, for a briefing on the importance of the obesity continuum of care, including the need for access to evidence-based obesity treatments and preventative interventions. The briefing will discuss how these approaches can address the ties between obesity and COVID-19, and the disproportionate impact on communities of color. We are also pleased to share a message from legislators on the importance of policy solutions related to this effort.
