You are the OAC: Discover the Power of Your Voice
“You are the OAC: Discover the Power of Your Voice” is an interactive, hands-on session to help guide you on getting involved in the cause through the OAC. This session is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about the OAC, has a desire to raise their voice, and wants to become further engaged in the OAC’s efforts. If you have found yourself asking, “How Can I Get Involved?,” then this session is for YOU!
The OAC was founded upon the mission to elevate and empower individuals affected by obesity through education, advocacy and support. Each of the three pillars of the OAC’s mission is integral to the organization, and YOU are the key to carrying out these important elements of the OAC! We all have a story, and it’s in sharing that story that we can make a difference together. In this session, you will explore each of the pillars of the OAC’s mission, learn what the OAC does each and every day to help those affected, and how you can join in our efforts to make a difference! One of the key elements to all components in this session is the power of raising your voice through sharing your story. This session will teach you how to effectively share yourself with others and give you the tools needed to immediately begin making a difference in the cause.
This session is available to all registered OAC Convention attendees and pre-registration is required. Space is limited to the first 75 attendees who sign-up in advance. To sign-up for this session, please complete the Special Event Add-on Section on the Convention Registration form to secure your spot.
