NAAFA-CC Announces First Quarter, 2015 Size Savvy Healthcare Award
NAAFA-Clark County Chapter presents the First Quarter, 2015 Size Savvy Healthcare Award to Dr. Michael Coy of Health Care Partners of Nevada for his willingness to make his practice accessible and accommodating.
The Size Savvy Project makes information available to the public regarding healthcare providers who have made their practice welcoming to people of all sizes. A size savvy facility meets certain criteria making it accessible and accommodating.
This award is given as a way to promote healthcare providers, such as Dr. Coy, who understand that people come in a large range of body sizes. We want people to know that Dr. Coy values patients of all body sizes and makes accommodations to ensure their comfort, ease of accessibility and true sense of being welcomed.
The Size Savvy reviewer specifically noted that "Dr. Coy is very accommodating, listens to his patients and treats every complaint with the care needed without assumption about body size. He is a size sensitive physician."
We congratulate Dr. Coy on receiving this prestigious award.
Founded in 1969, NAAFA is a non-profit human rights organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people of large body size. NAAFA works to eliminate discrimination based on body size and provide people with the tools for self-empowerment through public education, advocacy, and member support.
