You shouldn’t have to be skinny to get good medical care.
And yet, you’ve had that moment when you step on the scale at the doctor’s office and the nurse does that (almost) imperceptible head shake while writing the number down.
You’ve sat across from a doctor telling you that you’re going to get diabetes, despite your chart saying otherwise.
And regardless of what it is you came in complaining about and seeking care for, the diagnosis was always “too fat.”
These types of things happen every single day in medical offices. It’s not just you. It’s not just your doctor. And it’s not OK. In fact, this type of medical prejudice and willful ignorance is killing people.
Join us for the In This Body: Navigating Medical Care in a Bigger Body virtual conference and learn how to navigate a hostile medical system, the truth about being fat and conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and infertility, and why it’s so important that you do get the care that you need.
