Healthcare Provider Guidelines Minus The Fat Bias

NAAFA introduces our Guidelines for Healthcare Providers Who Treat Fat Patients to provide education for healthcare providers to help them better understand and treat fat patients.

 
PRLog - Oct. 12, 2011 - FOSTER CITY, Calif. -- Foster City, CA – In the midst of our nation’s frenzy to fight fat, there is an alarming increase in bias against fat patients among healthcare providers.  NAAFA is working to change that discriminatory attitude by introducing our 2011 Guidelines for healthcare providers who treat fat patients.

NAAFA has stepped up to provide education for healthcare providers to help them better understand and treat fat patients.  We believe that the information included in NAAFA’s Guidelines for healthcare providers who treat fat patients will help them create a safer more welcoming environment for their patient’s office visits as well as a more understanding attitude which can lead to more open conversation about best health choices. NAAFA believes in equality at every size.

NAAFA’s Guidelines for healthcare providers who treat fat patients is available as a free download from of our website at www.naafa.org

Founded in 1969, NAAFA is a non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for fat people. NAAFA works to eliminate discrimination based on body size and provide fat people with the tools for self-empowerment through public education, advocacy, and member support.
