In the previous email, the WSO News Bulletin published an incorrect version of OA’s new policy statement on bariatric surgery. The correct statement reads:
“In keeping with Tradition Ten, Overeaters Anonymous has no opinion on bariatric (weight-loss) surgery. In the spirit of Tradition Three, Overeaters Anonymous welcomes anyone with a desire to stop eating compulsively, including those who have had the surgery or are contemplating it.”
The incorrect version referenced Tradition Ten twice. The World Service Office apologizes for the error.
