Worried about being called fat? Anticipated weight stigma harms health with Dr. Angela Meadows, PhD Body Kindness

    • Mental Health

Weight stigma, problems with our culture and the biases we carry about higher weight people harms their health. One pathway is through internalized stigma that elevates a person’s worry and anxiety about how they will be treated by the people and the physical spaces in this world (think comfortable seats - or the right to sit!) Founder of the International Weight Stigma Conference, Dr. Angela Meadows and I discuss.
