The NSHRF would like to congratulate Dr. Sara Kirk, the Canada Research Chair in Health Services Research at Dalhousie University’s School of Health and Human Performance, on the recent publication of her article “Blame, Shame, and Lack of Support: A Multi-level Study on Obesity Management." The research discussed in this publication is using live drama to highlight the issue of weight bias and stigma in obesity management in a thought-provoking way. Targeted at health professional students from a range of disciplines, the drama is incorporated in a 3-hour workshop that conveys the key findings of the NSHRF - funded study “Balancing the Scales: Promoting Healthy Weight Management without Blame or Shame.”
