Pamphlet released on obesity

The Obesity Action Coalition has released the first in a series of pamphlets on obesity. "Understanding Obesity" offers readers an in-depth look into obesity and morbid obesity, as well as addressing who it affects, health risks and treatment options.“The OAC recognized that there wasn’t an educational brochure available to patients and the public that really looked at obesity as a whole." said Joseph Nadglowski Jr., OAC president and CEO, in a press release announcing the pamphlet. "Often times, people overlook the many facets of living with obesity or morbid obesity, such as the diminished quality of life, the negative stigma associated with it, the lack of the ability for individuals to access safe and effective care and much more."According to the nonprofit, future pamphlets will address childhood obesity and further examine treatment options
