In a recent study in the online Pediatrics journal, children who are obese were found more likely to be bullied than their peers. This finding was noted regardless of sex, race, academic ability or socioeconomic status. In addition, the study found that these children were bullied specifically because of their weight. This conference will discuss the bias and bullying experienced by obese children as well as adults, policy and legal solutions to address weight discrimination, identify community factors that impact obesity, and share Indiana success stories in treating obesity.
