About the Event

Despite the fact that nearly 95% of diets fail in the long term, and dieters often experience more weight gain than they originally lost, weight loss still remains a primary focus of many health care provider as the go to solution for all wellness challenges. 

In this discussion, Shelby will provide a brief history of how “health” is really a capitalistic, industrial complex with roots in racism, misogony and American exceptionalism.

She will also outline the impact this history has on contemporary health care services and provider training.

And ways patients can immediately become true Chief Information and Technology Officers to effectively advocate for their wellness and medical care.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify ways patients can more efficiently advocate for themselves – no matter their weight, shape or size.
  2. To understand that health is a complex scenario many are systematically excluded from and how to re-align expectations and realities to best collaborate with health care provides to maximize wellness.
  3. Where to find community and resources to keep up-to-date on advocacy and patient education opportunities.
