Preventing Weight Stigma in Obesity Prevention Campaigns

The AYAH-RN supported an on-line adaption of an in-person weight stigma prevention project. Led by Bryn Austin, PhD, in partnership with Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard University, the project aims to teach public health professionals strategies to mitigate weight stigma in obesity prevention campaigns. Participants develop an evidence-based health communication campaign focused on childhood obesity prevention that is attentive to ethical concerns in both its design and evaluation plan. 

The on-line program is available here.
