We are glad to be able to share access to a recent international panel discussion on the hugely important issue of weight stigma. In this panel, four experts in the field present on the impact that weight stigma has on people living with obesity and on funding for scientific research which could develop future treatments.
- Rachel L. Batterham, MD, University College London
- Vicki Mooney, ECPO Executive Director & Patient
- Francesco Rubino, MD, King’s College London
- Joseph Nadglowski, BS, Obesity Action Coalition
The panel provides a rich understanding of the pervasive workings and effects of weight stigma, why it is is such a problem and what needs to be done to address what is arguably the last socially acceptable form of discrimination. Watch the panel on demand here.
