The YWM2020 Program Agenda Committee is responsible for crafting the Convention Educational Program, along with selecting the speakers for each session. In keeping with our commitment to ensure the educational program is unbiased and directed at the goals and mission of the Convention, the committee begins the process by first assembling the educational program and then seeks-out the speakers whose expertise best fits the scope of the session.
The OAC welcomes the interest from all members and followers, and we would like to open-up the process to actively solicit for interested speakers for YWM2020. All sessions submitted must appeal to a patient audience and should be directed at the everyday individual interested in science-based weight management strategies. In addition, all OAC Convention Speakers are selected based on their expertise and respective credentials, where applicable. Topic areas and speaker expertise needed for YWM2020 include:
- Science-based Treatment Options for Excess Weight and Obesity
- Weight Maintenance Strategies
- Post-surgical Care
- Nutrition (general and surgical)
- Mental Health
- Childhood Obesity and Family Health Strategies
- Obesity-related Conditions
The open call process for the 2020 Convention Agenda is now CLOSED. The deadline to submit your interest was Friday, October 25. Any submissions received after this date may not be able to be fully considered since the planning process is underway.
