In this 2-hour interactive training, participants will consider the challenges fat clients face when seeking care for an unintended pregnancy, including provider bias, environmental barriers, and lack of provider training on working with fat patients. Participants will learn how these challenges are made more complicated when a client holds additional marginalized identities. Participants will gain knowledge to apply best practices in serving fat clients who are seeking care for unintended pregnancy.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Define anti-fat bias and identify at least one way anti-fat bias shows up in the world
- Describe at least one factor that may impact a fat individual’s ability to access reproductive healthcare
- Explain at least two best practices in supporting fat individuals in accessing reproductive healthcare
- State at least one intended practice change in referring fat individuals to abortion services
