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
