In this episode of the IPCC Podcast, guest host Sarah Stevens helps us navigate issues surrounding, health, weight, and nutrition in society and healthcare today. Sarah is a podcaster and the founder of "The Beautifull Project," a storytelling collective that invites women back to their bodies and into a world where they belong with substance and with strength.
Sarah and her guests discuss how BMI hinders both patients and providers, why science is shifting away from individual-based approaches to fight excess body weight to a community-based approach, and the challenges providers face to become more person-centered when discussing weight and nutrition with their patients.
