Unpacking Weight Science Podcast

How about bite-sized podcasts that you can claim as professional development?!?

I've designed the Unpacking Weight Science Podcast to suit health professionals, health science students and anyone who wants to know more about human body weight, health outcomes, interpreting weight related research and the far ranging effects of weight bias.

The 20-30 minute monthly podcasts unpack different elements of weight bias & stigma, weight research, BMI, health behaviours and weight neutral approaches. Paid subscribers (only $5/month!) get instant access to all previous episodes plus full show notes, reference list, self-test quiz and resource materials for use in practice for recent episodes. This equates to an hour of professional development activity each month :-)

Available for subscribers now is:

Ep 30: 'Transplant Trouble: Kidney Transplants and Weight'

BMI cut-offs are frequently used to deny larger-bodied people from attaining a kidney transplant when they need it most. This episode delves into the validity and ethics of transplant weight restrictions and weight loss advice for people with end stage renal disease.

and instantly access 25 episodes before the rest of the world!

Episodes 1-5 are now on iTunes!
