Replay: OCAN Obesity Care Week Congressional Briefing — Obesity Care, COVID and Communities of Color

REPLAY: As a part of Obesity Care Week 2021, the Obesity Care Advocacy Network hosted 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 discussed how these approaches can address the ties between obesity and COVID-19, and the disproportionate impact on communities of color. We also shared messages from Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on the importance of policy solutions related to this effort. --- Disclaimer: Opinions expressed by individuals are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of the Obesity Care Advocacy Network (OCAN) or its members.
