*Update* Changed to Virtual: Health at Every Size

Saturday, May 18 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, May 18, 2024

11 am – 12 pm

*Update* Changed to Virtual, Zoom Webinar

(Previous: 1st Floor Community Room)

Health at Every Size (HAES) is a holistic approach that views health not in terms of a lack of illness, but rather an individual resource that we all have the opportunity to work toward if we so choose.  The HAES framework works to distance itself from the focus on weight that is so often emphasized in our social and medical cultures and works to improve access to high quality medical care regardless of one’s size.  This presentation will discuss the main principles of the HAES framework and will dispel the myths that often accompany it.  The presenters will share the psychological and dietary benefits of adopting a HAES approach to health and will provide participants with practical steps in working toward this goal.

Please register.
