HAES® Curriculum

The Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH), the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA), and the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) are pleased to offer the Health At Every Size® Curriculum for the education of college and university students and health professionals. The Health at Every Size model is a health-focused, weight-neutral approach to health that promotes the right to be peaceful in one’s body. This curriculum was developed to educate others on adopting a weight neutral approach towards health, thereby filling a void in health curriculum at colleges, universities, and professional training programs. Access curriculum material online.
