Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Lecture Series

Health at Every Size® Training

with Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD, CD

Date: January 16, 2019
Time: 5:30pm – 8:00pm
Location: Opal: Food+Body Wisdom
Intended Audience: This event is open to all
 
Julie Church, RDN, CD, CEDRD will provide an introduction to Health at Every Size (HAES).  HAES is relevant for all of us since it is a paradigm that emphasizes equality for all, regardless of body size. All of us have varying degrees of awareness of how we have been impacted by the societal norms around size and weight. This training will provide a foundation of nutrition and weight science research to help attendees learn the truth around weight and health and increase awareness of size discrimination/weight stigma.  Time will be spent in the training to help translate the science discussed into our professional and personal lives.
 
We invite anyone and everyone to attend this training!  Parents, educators, counselors, medical providers, nurses, physical therapists, fitness/yoga instructors, college students, etc.

2 CE hours will be available for dietitians and therapists. 

This is a free event. Coffee, tea, and snacks will be served.

Julie Church is a nationally registered and state certified dietitian, who has been passionate about treating eating disorders for over 17 years.  She received her BS in Dietetics from the University of Kentucky and has been providing nutrition counseling to those struggling with eating disorders since 2001.  She has joyfully contributed to related awareness and education events throughout her career and is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Eating Disorders Association, and International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. She is known by colleagues, friends and family as a woman who lives and breathes her treatment philosophies of non-diet and health at every size.
