Healthcare Provider Guidelines Minus the Fat Bias
NAAFA introduces our updated Guidelines for Healthcare Providers With Fat Clients offering healthcare workers information to better understand and treat fat clients.
NAAFA has stepped up to help educate healthcare providers enabling them to better understand and treat fat clients. We believe that the information included in this updated brochurewill help them create a safer more welcoming environment for their client's office visits as well as a more understanding attitude which can lead to open conversation about best health choices. NAAFA promotes Equality at Every Size.
From the waiting room to the examination room to the attitudes of the staff, NAAFA's Guidelines for healthcare providers with fat clients provides information that will improve everyone's experience when seeking medical assistance. It 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.
