Addressing clients’ body image concerns while staying within scope of practice is a common question amongst dietitians. Using real-world examples from their own work as a non-binary, fat health coach, Vinny Welsby of Fierce Fatty will discuss why body image issues can derail work with food/nutrition, common mistakes to avoid, and practical ways dietitians can support their clients in this area.
Marquisele (Mikey) Mercedes, PhD(c) and Monica Kriete, MPH, join us to discuss how the public health and dietetics fields perpetuate fatphobia and weight stigma, what dietitians can do to reduce harm, and more.
Dietitians Jessica Begg, Angela Birnie, Karen Trainoff and Jillian Walsh share their motivations and experiences in pursuing a counselling degree while working as a dietitian in this panel discussion moderated by Laura Creek Newman.
