UAlberta: Young People (Aged 13-18) with Obesity Needed for Interviews in Research Study About Weight Bias

We are doing a study about weight bias experiences of young people with obesity. Weight bias is when people are treated unfairly because of their body size. We want to better understand how weight bias happens, so that we can find effective ways to reduce it.

Are you:

  • Between the ages of 13-18?
  • In the Edmonton area?
  • Interested in sharing your experiences of what it has been like to grow up in bodies labelled as overweight or obese?

Then we would like to chat with you! We are recruiting young people for face-to-face interviews. You will get a $30 Chapters-Indigo gift card for participating.

To participate or get more information, click here or contact Alexa Ferdinands by email at or phone (403) 594-3552.

Please share with others, including your teens at home, who might be interested.
