Endocrine Society Calls on Congress to Support the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act of 2023

November 14, 2023

Dear Chair McMorris Rodgers, Ranking Member Pallone, Chair Smith and Ranking Member Neal:

"The undersigned organizations write today to raise awareness and initiate a call for action to address an urgent health epidemic: the growing number of people living with obesity who lack access to comprehensive evidence-based care. Obesity is a treatable chronic disease that plays a major factor in many other conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, fatty liver disease, kidney disease, lipid disorders, certain cancers, sleep apnea, arthritis, and mental illness. The treatment of obesity requires a comprehensive approach, which is why we are calling on Congress to support passage of S 2407/HR 4818, the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act (TROA) of 2023."
