Clearly, and unfortunately, weight stigma is alive and well in our world! That’s why I’m pleased to be a “Featured Blogger” in BEDA’s annual “Weight Stigma Awareness Week” September 23-17, 2013. Click here to read my article, Where There’s Weight Stigma, “Weight” and “Health” Get All Mixed Up!
A full week of online activities begin today on Facebook and on the BEDA Website.
