Today, more than ever, society and media have a major impact on the way people perceive their bodies and what "healthy" means to them. Interest in Health At Every Size (HAES®), a weight-neutral, evidence-based alternative to disease prevention and human wellness, is on the rise as an alternative to the traditional weight loss messages. The Renfrew Center of Nashville will be offering a workshop on these principles.
In this workshop, attendees will gain an understanding of how HAES:
Offers an alternative approach to health improvement that is weight neutral.
Is our best bet at helping without harming, without unintended negative consequences.
Allows us to view health within the context of the whole person and the complex factors
that affect our wellbeing.
Provides the opportunity to examine our own biases about weight and body size.
Open to alumni, professionals and the community • Light refreshments will be served
