YWM2015 – There From The Beginning
James Zervios has been with the Obesity Action Coalition since it’s inception in 2005, which makes this the 10th Anniversary. James has seen the OAC go from just a handful of members to over 50,000 members across the country. We chatted a bit about where YWM2016 is going to be (spoiler alert: Washington DC).
As Vice President of Marketing and Communications, James deals with the media quite a bit, he is also a key part of the Bias Committee… and is very active as part of the current Ban the F Word campaign. We talked a bit about the details behind the campaign, and how it’s not about banning the word fat itself, but more about bringing attention to, and stopping it’s use as a negative descriptor or pejorative.
