What is the weighting room?
I receive dozens of messages a day asking for advice about how to advocate for weight inclusive care. As much as I would love to answer them all individually, I simply do not have enough time or resources to do so. That being said, I have noticed some recurring themes throughout these messages. Specific conditions and symptoms that tend to be overlooked or mismanaged by weight normative doctors who believe that weight loss is a treatment that they should be prescribing!
So I decided that I would put together a monthly live interactive event that would focus on one of these conditions and give folks the opportunity to ask questions and learn how what to expect from their healthcare professionals. Each session will begin with some information and education which I have personally created and I’ve included an example below. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
Tickets are priced at £10 and can be purchased directly from Crowdcast. This reflects the amount of time and effort that I have placed into creating them. However, I appreciate that some people may not be able to afford this, which is why I am offering them on a sliding scale. If you cannot afford to pay £10 then pay what you can. If you can afford to pay more, then consider paying more in order to help those at a financial disadvantage.
If you can’t make it to the live event, the video will be available to download straight away and can be watched at your own convenience. Remember that I cannot offer medical advice and the purpose of these sessions are for educational purposes only. Any information that I provide is not meant as a substitute for medical care. If you are not sure, you should always consult your own doctor. And any opinions expressed here are my own.
This month’s Weighting Room is on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
