The Nurses Obesity Network is a diverse group of nursing organizations committed to changing the way we view, treat, and advance care for people living with obesity — including members of our own nursing profession.
There is more to weight than what we see. Obesity is a chronic disease which requires more than one approach to weight management and treatment. More than 2 in 5 Americans are living with obesity today, with disproportionate prevalence in communities of color, yet people living with obesity often lack the medical care they deserve.
Collectively, we will become role models for wellbeing, champions for change, and advocates for better obesity care and treatment.
