Content Description

Publications, memorabilia, newsletters, subject files, photos, audio and videotapes related to HAES and weight related issues.

Biographical / Historical

Dr. Barbara Bruno, B.A.'68, English, helped form Health at Every Size (HAES) after many years of size acceptance activism, mental health counseling, teaching, and writing. She continues to teach, speak, consult, and write as a HAES advocate. She is on the Advisory Board of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA) and former education co-chair for the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH).
The Health at Every Size (HAES) approach has been proposed to address weight bias and stigma in individuals living with obesity. It is also a movement working to promote size-acceptance, to end weight discrimination, and to lessen the cultural obsession with weight loss and thinness.
