Equity Thursdays offer weekly presentations by members of the Tulane University community and invited guests from Greater New Orleans. Faculty, Students, Staff, Alumni and Friends share information regarding topics of academic access. The sessions discuss cutting edge research, distinctive academic opportunities and offer a forum for reflection on the intersection of identity and the academic experience. The Center for Academic Equity serves lunch (free of charge) from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. We welcome students, faculty, and staff to come to Equity Thursdays and join the Center for Academic Equity community.
Join us this Thursday for a guided discussion surrounding Health at Every Size. Carli Gertler, a Registered Dietician with Tulane’s Student Health Center, host a presentation that discusses the weight normative versus weight inclusive approach to health care, history and inappropriate use of BMI including racial and misogynistic roots, social determinants of health, weight stigma and ways to think about improving health without focusing on intentional weight loss or changing one’s body shape/size.
