Obesity, Eating Behaviors and Stigma among Service Members

June 23, 2016; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

PDF Presentation | PDF Resources

Despite the fact that a majority of Americans are overweight, individuals who are overweight or obese are frequent targets of stigma and prejudice in multiple domains, including employment, education, health care and portrayal in the media. The psychological consequences of weight stigma include low self-esteem, poor body image, depression, anxiety and suicidal behaviors. Maintaining weight standards across the Defense Department may be a challenge for service members who are overweight or obese and they may experience related stigma and bias.
