Jessica Wilson, MS, RDN (she/her) Bio:
Jessica Wilson, MS, RDN (she/her) is the author of It’s Always Been Ours; Rewriting the Story of Black Women’s Bodies, a book addressing how the historical narratives about Black women’s bodies lead to restriction and restraint. She is the co-creator of the Amplify Melanated Voices challenge that went viral in 2020. She is a clinical dietitian whose experiences navigating the dietetic fields as a Black, queer dietitian have been featured on public radio shows and in print media, including the New York Times, Bustle, and Cronkite News.
Jessica has worked as a clinical dietitian since 2007 and is acutely aware of how both the framing of “healthy eating” and “obesity” contributes to disordered eating and self-blame.
She speaks openly and candidly about the harm caused to people by designating individual identities and bodies as risk factors, rather than targeting the structural inequities and violence that marginalized individuals must endure.
