Treat and Reduce Obesity Act Sponsor, Senator Carper, Visits the Academy

Thanks to the Academy's Political Action Committee, Senator Tom Carper (Del.) attended an event at the Academy last week with Academy Past-President Ethan Bergman, PhD, RDN, CD, FADA, and experts from the obesity community to discuss nutrition health care policy.

The Academy's Political Action Committee (ANDPAC) invited Senator Carper and key stakeholders in the obesity community to gather together to examine the environmental, cultural and personal issues affecting obesity rates in America. The Obesity Action Coalition, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, The Obesity Society, Eisai, Allergan, Takeda and members of Senator Caper's staff joined Senator Carper to share personal stories, creative ideas and key data to brainstorm ways to prevent and reverse the obesity epidemic.

Senator Carper introduced the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act in the Senate earlier this summer. This bill would give the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services the authority to allow registered dietitian nutritionists and other qualified healthcare practitioners to independently provide and be reimbursed for intensive behavioral therapy for obesity to Medicare participants, most of whom are 65 and older. Carper is a strong advocate for health and obesity issues.

After the breakfast, experts in the obesity community met to identify additional ways to collaborate and strengthen our advocacy efforts to move the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act through Congress.
