PCMG welcomes a new collaborator!

Since its inception in 2005, the Obesity Action Coalition has grown to be the nation's leading voice on obesity. Today, OAC has more than 70,000 members. This national nonprofit coalition is fighting to eliminate weight bias and discrimination, elevating the conversation of weight and its impacts on health, and offering a community of support to people affected. OAC also offers resources for clinicians, as well as a database of clinicians who treat patients with obesity.

Submitting Your Listing - In order to submit your listing to the locator, you will need to visit this link and complete the form. You must submit your email to be listed.

Multiple Practices - If you have multiple practice locations, you are able to have each of them listed, however, you will need to provide a unique email address for each listing. Essentially, you will complete the form multiple times with a different email each time for each practice location.

Use of Your Email Address - By completing the OAC's form, you are opting in to their locator database and you will receive an email each quarter to update your listing information, if any information has changed.

In addition, email addresses will not be sold or provided to any other entity for any use.

This is an excellent marketing opportunity for those of you who offer treatment for obesity, and PCMG is proud to partner with the OAC on this effort. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact OAC at
