“It’s to be called COACH and it stands for Canadian Obesity Awareness and Control Initiative for Health. It’s aim will be to provide consumer-friendly guidance to help Canadian kids, families and adults find and use available resources to manage their weight.
It’s an idea that’s long overdue. It’ll draw not only upon the knowledge of the professional members of the Canadian Obesity Network, but also on yours.
We need to give Canadians who battle their weight a voice. COACH will be their megaphone.
Now it’s not exactly a done deal and to see it happen, COACH needs your support.
I am a fan of the blog “Weighty Matters”. For anyone from Canada who reads my blog I want to make them aware of COACH which is part of the Canadian Obesity Network and encourage them to support this initiative.
Obesity is a serious health problem. The U.S. and Canada share many of the same obesity related issues.
No matter where you live read about this initiative and learn what can be done to help those who are in a fight with obesity.
