About the OAC

The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) was founded in 2005. We are a national non-profit organization dedicated to giving a voice and helping individuals along their journey toward better health. Your Weight Matters is one of our initiatives, which encourages you to start your health journey, but we do so much more!

We offer a variety of helpful tools and resources to help you better understand your health journey:

  • National Awareness Campaigns
  • Public Education
  • Annual Convention
  • Vibrant Community
  • And Much More!

Our core focuses are:


Understanding your weight and health is part of the journey. Through initiatives like Your Weight Matters, we want to help you better understand why your weight is important and how to reach your health goals.


From the Weight Matters Magazine to our online library and blogs, we have an extensive list of educational resources that you can use to learn about your weight and health.


We want to empower you to use your voice, make a difference and take action through our different resources, such as our Action Center and Weight Bias tools.


We want to help you foster meaningful connections through the OAC Community and find the healthcare support you need through our Obesity Care Provider Locator.
