She works as a weight inclusive consultant, providing education to treatment centers and healthcare providers on the immense harms of weight stigma. Due to her lived experience facing weight stigma, Sharon provides unique insight and offers practical tools to make treatment centers and healthcare settings safe and accessible for fat folks. Listen this week as we discuss her medical experiences with fatphobia, why atypical anorexia isn’t really atypical, and eating disorder bias in humans with larger bodies.
