YWM2014 – The Interviews Part 3

Here’s the next installment of interviews I did at the Obesity Action Coalition 3rd Annual Convention – Your Weight Matters 2014. I’m not even half way through my audio files here. If you are waiting to hear the one where I talked to YOU, bear with me!


To start out on Saturday, I hit up the folks I was having breakfast with, which includes Debera, Jeff Newell, Nancee, Diane (who came all the way from Costa Rica! and was one of the YWM Scholarship Winners), and Diane.

Next was Jarrod, who is a post-op himself, but also one of the reps with Bariatric Advantage and chatted about some of the new things they have out… specifically a new orange flavor for their 500mg calcium chews.

Following that I visited with an old friend from previous conference. Amy is the owner of Slimpressions “confidence wear”.

Can you tell I did a lot of talking to folks during some of the presentations this morning? After Amy I chatted with Paul with Ferrets IPS Iron Supplements.

Jason with OptiFast then chatted about their medically supervised weight loss program.

Denise chatted about Together We S.H.I.N.E. message of the weekend and the Educational aspects. Then I met Megan and Emily. Emily chatted about how she lost her weight using OptiFast and became a clincial rep with them. Megan is here as a personal trainer for the educational aspects as well as meeting folks battling obesity.

I’ll round up this session with a chat with Mark with EnteroMedics. They are the producers of a new medical device, a neuro-stimulator that is under clinical trials as a hunger suppressant.
