Weight-Neutral Healthcare: Has healthcare become too weight focused? Have we lost sight of adequate nutrition and overall well being in our attempts to make people smaller? Emerging science is showing the detrimental effects of weight discrimination and dieting on both physical and mental health. Many weight loss programs prescribed for people in larger bodies would be considered eating disorder behavior in a thin person. This session will present the latest research on weight science and bias, and how to move your practice from weight-centric to weight-neutral.
