11. Anti-Fat Bias with Dr. Trina Dorrah
Content warning: use of the world ob*sity, discussion of eating disorder behavior, discussion of racism
Dr. Trina Dorrah internalized at an early age that thinness equates to health and acceptance. She describes how eating disorder behavior followed her into a career in medicine, her fight for recovery, and weight bias in health care. You can find Dr Dorrah on her website.
In lieu of an introduction this week, I discuss the intersection of racism and anti-fat bias, the fallacy of the BMI, and the pervasiveness of weight bias in health care.
