About the In-Person Program

The OAC is excited to plan to be back with our OAC Community this summer at the Westin Lake Las Vegas at our newly re-established Convention – YWM-Engage! YWM-Engage is now the official name of OAC’s in-person Convention and is a limited-capacity event specifically for those who want to take that deeper dive into weight and health education, while also focusing on making connections and learning how to take action to advance our cause.

YWM-Engage promises to be the most immersive Convention experience yet, featuring presentations from the leading experts, hands-on workshops, advocacy trainings, social events and meaningful connection opportunities. The Convention will kick-off on Thursday evening, with education, networking and advocacy events planned throughout Friday and Saturday. The official schedule will be launched in the coming months.

Who Should Attend

The OAC invites any individual to take part in YWM-Engage who wants to take a deeper dive in education and advocacy while also making connections with fellow attendees for ongoing support. Because the health and safety of our Convention attendees is our top priority, we have re-designed the in-person meeting to be a limited-capacity event. The OAC will sell up to 125 tickets to YWM2022 Engage, available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in attending YWM-Engage, we highly encourage you to get your tickets early, as we do anticipate them selling-out.
