Improving Care for Adolescent Girls: The Importance of Addressing Weight Bias is focused on sensitive, but effective, healthcare provider communications with adolescent girls with overweight/obesity, and their caregivers. Girls with overweight/obesity are vulnerable to multiple forms of weight bias in healthcare settings. Building awareness of and strategies to decrease weight bias and stigma in primary care settings encourages sensitive, compassionate, and culturally appropriate communications between healthcare providers and patients.
