NAAFA to Award 2012 Health At Every Size® Scholarship

In the hopes of encouraging further study across a variety of disciplines that incorporate Health At Every Size (HAES®) tenets and principles and to support the civil rights efforts to end size discrimination and bias, NAAFA is once again offering its HAES Scholarship to be awarded at their 2012 Convention to be held at the Westin San Francisco Airport Hotel August 2-6, 2012.

Jenny Copeland, NAAFA’s first HAES Scholar, utilized the scholarship award to present her research at the American Public Health Association’s Annual Meeting. ‘This is exactly how we envisioned the purpose of the scholarship; allowing bright minds to further pursue their research and opportunities to highlight their work”, states Lisa Tealer, NAAFA Board Member and Director of Programs.

Undergraduate and graduate students from accredited academic institutions which utilize Health at Every Size tenets in their studies and research, are eligible to apply for the NAAFA HAES Scholarship. Students interested in being considered for this scholarship may find complete details and an application at: http://www.naafaonline.com/naafasummit2012/objectives/scholarship.html

The application deadline is May 2, 2012. For more information about NAAFA’s National Convention and 2nd HAES Summit please visit:  http://www.naafa.org

Founded in 1969, NAAFA is a non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to ending size discrimination. Our goal is for people of size to be accepted with dignity and equality and will pursue this goal through advocacy, public education, and support.
