Weight stigma is one of the most pressing yet rarely discussed issues in healthcare equity. Though weight and measurements such as BMI are often touted as major factors in health outcomes, much research shows that current healthcare approaches to weight and body size are not necessarily as effective—or grounded in science—as previously believed. In this interactive session, participants will discuss the history of the body positive movement and weight stigma, as well as learn how to combat negative body talk while gaining strategies on how to support ourselves and others through times of negative body image.
