No Blog Post this week as I am very busy. But please participate in the ASDAH conference which will be in Boston Next Year (And I hope to be there).
2015 ASDAH Educational Conference Theme & Call for Proposals
With the 2015 ASDAH Educational Conference set to take place July 17-19 in the heart of downtown Boston at the Boston Park Plaza hotel, the Association for Size Diversity and Health is excited to announce its conference theme:
Building Relationships in the HAES® Community and Beyond
With an increasing number of challenges facing the HAES community, both internally and externally, it’s time to remove the barriers that hinder the conversations that will strengthen ASDAH’s work, resolve and mission of spreading the Health At Every Size® message. Therefore, the entire conference will be devoted to discussions around the difficult conversations ASDAH and the HAES community needs to have.
ASDAH is seeking proposals for presentations and workshops at the conference. For the first time ever, and to ensure that crucial voices are not silenced, presenters are not required to be ASDAH members.
Please visit the ASDAH website (https://bit.ly/asdah-2015) to learn about the different kinds of topics and areas that the ASDAH Conference is hoping to cover, though, remember that presentations are welcome in subjects not on the list. All presentations should include consideration of relevant elements of diversity for wider application in multiple environments – one of the difficult challenges already facing the HAES community. See the website for the different elements submissions should include.
Please email submissions to Dr. Jenny Copeland ([email protected]) for review no later than December 15, 2014. Please contact Dr. Copeland with any questions.
ASDAH looks forward to seeing you at the conference!
