Navigating Weight Stigma at the Doctor’s Office with Shelby Gordon Workshop (Ragen Chastain)


In this workshop Shelby and Ragen will discuss the intersectionality of weight stigma in healthcare with other marginalizations including racism, healthism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia and more, the research around weight and health, and tips, tricks, and strategies for getting competent, evidence-based, care from healthcare practitioners, even when they, and the system they are working in, are mired in weight stigma.
