Healthy Living EXPO

Understanding what to do to take charge of your weight and improve your health is tough. Each day, you are likely bombarded with conflicting messages and new products or plans that just leave you more confused. The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), a National non-profit organization, understands this, and understands that individuals seeking to improve their weight and health need to be steered down the right path and given the proper tools to embark on the weight management journey.

With this, the OAC is pleased to host a Community Health Outreach Day and invites residents in the New Orleans area to attend our Your Weight Matters Healthy Living EXPO for FREE on Saturday, August 12 from 9 am- 5 pm at the Sheraton New Orleans. The Community Health Outreach Day provides access and exposure to quality education and vetted products/services that can improve your weight, along with the opportunity to take part in a complimentary Health Screening to assess your current health status. The YWM Healthy Living EXPO provides local residents the opportunity to visit a diverse array of vendors showcasing proven devices, products and services in the health and wellness industry.
