Stigma, discrimination and obesity: the implications

While obesity is recognised as a chronic relapsing disease by most key international organisations, including the WHO, some people still consider obesity to be a lifestyle choice. As a result, there is strong evidence of bias against people living with obesity.


In this episode, our guests will explore the consequences of weight bias, obesity stigma and discriminatory implications for people living with obesity in the context of areas such as healthcare, education and employment. Hosted by Vicki Mooney (ECPO) with guests Professor Rebecca Puhl (Deputy Director for the Rudd Center for Food Policy) and Sarah Bramblette (Patient advocate)
