2017 Spring Assembly: Public Information Committee Report

2017 Spring Assembly: Public Information Committee Report

The committee is interested in producing a pamphlet directed at bariatric health professionals who offer surgery and education in the treatment of obesity. An OA member who had bariatric surgery believes that “OA claims no monopoly on helping with compulsive eating behaviors, that we neither endorse or oppose any approach to treatment of obesity,…we extend a hand of support to bariatric professionals as an adjunct to their treatment , not an alternative”. The committee has not decided what to do yet.

The OALAIG Public Outreach Chair, Bahati, will be meeting in February with Denise to discuss the project to distribute flyers to membership for posting.
