Well Fed: The F-Word - De-stigmatizing 'Fat'

Since when did “fat” become a dirty word? (Contrary to popular belief, high BMI does not equal ill health and laziness.) So why are we treating obesity like the bubonic plague? At this Well Fed meeting, we will discuss the medically inaccurate, classist, and racist underpinnings of the stigmatization of fat. We will also go on to explore the concept of “health at every size” and other more positive and productive ways to think about physical well-being. Join us Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 1-2 p.m. in UMC 416.
