OCAN Comments on NCHS Proposal

November 09, 2022

Dear Ms. Pickett:

"As members of the Obesity Care Advocacy Network (OCAN), we appreciate the opportunity to provide comments on the “Obesity in Children, Adolescents, and Adults” proposal considered at the September 2022 ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance (C&M) meeting. Founded in 2015, OCAN is a diverse group of organizations focused on changing how we perceive and approach obesity in the U.S. OCAN works to increase access to evidence-based obesity treatments by uniting key stakeholders and the broader obesity community around significant education, policy and legislative efforts. We aim to fundamentally change how the U.S. healthcare system treats obesity, and to shift the cultural mindset on obesity so that  policymakers and the public address obesity as a serious chronic disease."
