Health at Every Size® Professional Listing Project
One of the biggest barriers for fat people and people of all sizes is navigating traditionally fatphobic settings such as healthcare, education & advocacy, and fitness spaces. We’re redesigning our listing of professionals to be easier to use and better meet the needs of our community, and to center those in our community who have been historically and are currently marginalized such as Black people, trans people, and superfat and larger people.
We are planning a multi-phase rollout with each phase informed by what we learn in the prior phases. We will have multiple opportunities for feedback as we learn more and create early prototypes of the listing.
After months of building a new technology solution, we are now recruiting HAES® Professionals (people who would apply to be on the listing) to alpha test the application and profile features. Apply by January 8!
