Transforming Care: Dreaming of New Worlds
April 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
This is the third in a three-part series examining the past, present, and future evolution of the Health at Every Size® framework of care. Folks who missed part one and/or two are welcome to join this session as well, as each session can also stand alone. In part three, we will provide an update on the Health at Every Size® Framework of Care revisions and look to the future of Health at Every Size® including the direction the ground-building work done this year on the HAES® Framework of Care is leading us. We’ll discuss a future where we move beyond Health at Every Size® as a necessary framework of care and what liberatory care might one day be like.
Learning Objectives coming soon.
