Most obese patients have experienced a lifetime of prejudice & discrimination. There is substantial evidence of obesity stigma in education, employment, social attributes & healthcare. Negative attitudes can influence our interpersonal interactions. Those are some of the reasons why we need to raise awareness in our campus. Insensitivity hurts!
