The Science Behind the Lived Experience of People with Obesity
Presented by: Carel Le Roux, MBChB, MSC, FRCP, FRCPath, PhD
In this thought-provoking session, you’ll discover how the testimony and perspectives of people living with obesity can be one of the most powerful tools in healthcare. Discover how we can use that data to collect new research, train healthcare professionals and change perceptions of obesity that will make treatment more effective and accessible.
Body Positivity and Weight Management: Is There a Middle Ground?
Presented by: Robyn Pashby, PhD
In this insightful and introspective session, you’ll learn more about the foundations of body positivity while exploring how to avoid the toxicity that comes from either side of the spectrum. This session will unpack common cultural perceptions around weight stigma and diet culture while empowering you to focus on health, wellness, and respect for your body that doesn’t adhere to someone else’s standards.
