Join this dynamic panel discussion that will explore what a healthy body is from body positive perspectives. They will address myths of “health” that falsely correlate to size, gender, class, race and ability and explore the unique needs of bodies that do not conform to able-bodied, cisgendered, thin, class-privileged and/or white identity.
