Weight stigma continues to be an issue in the UK and is apparent within a range of different settings and services – including journalism, healthcare, schools, the workplace and more.

Weight stigma presents a significant barrier for people living with obesity to access services, and creates a false narrative that obesity is solely a result of an individual’s actions, ignoring the impact of the wider determinants that significantly influence health outcomes.

Food Active now invites you to join them for their annual conference on 4th November, that will continue to explore weight stigma and consider this as a significant public health priority.
