Welcome to Celebrate Voice, a new home for sharing education, resources, and stories where the focus is YOU.
Our mission is to create a platform to Educate, Share, Support, and Collaborate for the fight against obesity. To teach individuals why and how to advocate for their health.
We understand obesity is a chronic disease that requires continued support, so we have created a place for open and honest communication. Our goal is to build bridges throughout the community to help you find the tools, information, and treatments you deserve. Along the way, we hope to inspire you to find and use your voice!
COMING SOON: Celebrate Voice
Welcome to the podcast that was created for patients by a patient. Join Laura as she unpacks complex topics in the bariatric community with industry leaders, partners, and real patients. Discover how finding your voice can make a difference in your personal health and wellness, and help create obesity education in your communities.
Join us LIVE on the second Sunday of each month at 7:00 pm for The Patient Roundtable. We will discuss obesity issues and share thoughts from a patient perspective.

Meet your host, Laura Preston. Laura brings over 16 years of experience as an RNY patient to her position of Director of Advocacy at Celebrate Vitamins. Her personal struggles with obesity led her to find her passion for working one-on-one with patients. Laura’s compassion for patients has fueled her advocacy for health and nutrition and awakened a passion for simplifying complex topics into “patient speak,” so anyone struggling with obesity can advocate for better healthcare.
Listen in as Laura shares her struggles with obesity.
Celebrate is a National Sponsor for the ASMBS Foundation’s Walk from Obesity. The Walk from Obesity is an opportunity to educate and provide resources for the prevention and treatment of obesity. Funds raised through this event are used to help support obesity treatment research, professional education, and access to care initiatives. Each year, Team Celebrate brings the excitement and enthusiasm for this important initiative, to celebrate the non-scale victories, and go the extra mile. We would love to have you join Team Celebrate and help us raise our voice in the fight against obesity.
Over the years, Celebrate has supported and sponsored the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC). The OAC is a 70,000 member-strong 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization dedicated to giving a voice to the individual affected by obesity. In addition to creating a voice amidst the disease, the OAC helps individuals on their journey toward better health through education, advocacy, and support. Important goals of the OAC include raising awareness, preventing the disease when possible, and increasing access to treatment. The OAC provides evidence-based education on obesity and its treatments, fights weight bias and discrimination, elevates the conversation of weight and its impact on health, and offers a community of support.
Celebrate shares this information on the work and resources of the OAC to build a bridge to the patient community.
