Weight Stigma and Ethical Care for Obesity

Monday, December 04, 2017

Sean Phelan

Associate Professor, Health Sciences Research
Mayo Clinic

Obesity is stigmatized and many heath care providers, like the general public, hold explicit and implicit negative attitudes about higher weight individuals. We will discuss ways that weight stigma may affect the quality of care for people with obesity and contribute to size disparities in health and health care outcomes, as well as some strategies to improve interpersonal care for higher weight people.
