Every month, year-round, we offer events of all kinds! Our hallmark education events and teach-ins deepen our understanding of health equity, improving access to healthcare, and abolishing weight-centric care. Education events are open to all Health at Every Size® Providers, Advocates, and folks who use HAES® in their personal approach to wellbeing. Member events are free to ASDAH members and provide connection and networking to engage with other ASDAH members. We also offer community events open to all – members and non-members – to build relationships and provide programming for those most impacted by fatphobia.

State of ASDAH Annual Meeting
Join us for our highly anticipated Annual Meeting! We are excited to connect with you and discuss our last year of work to improve healthcare for fat folks through the Health at Every Size® framework. This meeting will serve as libation for all we’ve transformed in the fires of freedom. It will also serve as a visioning space for the collective new world we’re building together.
Join us on September 28th, 2022, at 8PM EST/ 7PM CT.
AfroFuturism: Changing the Narrative on the Future of Bodies
This interactive workshop will give a history of AfroFuturism as well as an opportunity to discuss and work with the ideology of AfroFuturism (context, resilience, futurist ideation) as they apply to the ongoing work of ending fat antagonism. We will also discuss how we envision the ways in which we talk about bodies, examine bodies, and celebrate bodies in a way that humanizes all individuals along a spectrum of the diversity of bodies.
Open Mic: An ASDAH Member Event
The first event of the 2022-2023 ASDAH board year is a very special members-only Open Mic Event on July 24, 2022 at 1pm CT. This is an opportunity to share your talents with other ASDAH members through spoken word, song, dance, puppetry, and all the other ways you express your creativity in 5-minute time slots. At ASDAH’s 2022 Conference, we announced this year’s theme, Dreaming of New Worlds: HAES® in the Future. We welcome members to explore this theme during the open mic or present other areas of interest.
