Videos Exposing Weight Bias
To increase public awareness about weight bias, the Rudd Center has released three videos demonstrating myths and facts about weight prejudice, and the nature and extent of weight bias at home and in school, and at the doctor's office. Two of the videos are hosted by former supermodel and activist Emme and feature Rudd Center experts including Rebecca Puhl, PhD, Director of Research & Weight Stigma Initiatives. Each video uses both expert commentary and dramatic representation to address the obstacles obese individuals face with weight bias in American society. The videos also present strategies to help combat this rapidly growing problem.
