People First Language
Pledge to Use People-First Language and Imagery!

Using the term “obese” and headless imagery in organizational materials and during office visits with patients perpetuates stigma and bias toward people living with obesity. Pledging to use People-First Language and Imagery can help end weight bias and its harmful impacts.

Once you take the pledge, you will be directed to a new page with the following resources:

  • Weight Bias in Healthcare: A Guide for Healthcare Providers Working with Individuals Affected by Obesity
  • OAC Image Gallery: A free, non-commercial stock image gallery to use in materials such as patient education, presentations, newsletters and social media.
