For Doctors &
Powerful Role Models
As a healthcare professional, you are a powerful role model for young people and parents–teaching them to focus on health choices related to food and bodies. Studies have shown that communicating about numbers (weight, BMI) and percentiles does not drive health outcomes. In fact, it can do the opposite. We know that when healthcare professionals talk with young people about controllable health behaviors that is when we see positive health outcomes.
