Weight and Eating Behaviors: A Non-Stigmatizing Approach

This webinar will review the history of BMI as a metric and examine its connection to health outcomes. The impact of focusing on BMI and weight in healthcare will also be explored centering around the patient experience and weight stigma, including the direct link to health inequities. Strategies for assessing and discussing weight and eating behaviors will be introduced with a goal to shift attention from weight and appearance to nutrition and well-being
