Panel profile: Exploring Body Diversity

[Over the next week, we will be posting information on each of the conference panels, workshops, and presentations in anticipation of the panel sessions on Saturday, April 2. Check it out!]

Interested in size acceptance, fat activism, sizeism, or food politics? This presentation is for you:

Join us for an interactive discussion with a special focus on providing a brief overview and exploration of several body diversity concepts, including the Health At Every Size movement (HAES), fat activism, and body acceptance. The presenter will report on prejudice associated with body types in medical and professional fields as well as a history of ideal body shapes in America, and a discussion will follow with audience participation and sharing experiences.

Come learn more about body diversity and how it intersects with feminism and other social justice movements!
