Jessica L. Wilson
Shifting From Blame to Body Liberation

Jessica L. Wilson

During our session, we'll discuss:

- How the framing of "healthy eating" and "weight" have contributed to a culture of blame and disordered eating
- What systemic racism is and how it's propagated in diet culture
- What "health respectability" is and how does it influences our ability to love the skin we're in
- How heathism, ableism, and acting "right," interfere with our ability to recognize our inherent value and self-worth. And how society rewards them
- Jessica's advice for empowering ourselves, and others, to get to a place of genuine self-love and acceptance

Jessica Wilson(she/her) is a clinical dietitian, consultant and author of It’s Always Been Ours; Rewriting the Story of Black Women’s Bodies. Her experiences navigating the dietetic fields as a Black, queer dietitian have been featured on prime time news, public radio shows and in print media. Jessica has worked as a trauma-informed clinical dietitian since 2007 and believes that her clients’ lived experiences can be more important to their care than what is considered to be “best practice.”

She speaks openly and candidly about the harm caused to our patients by designating individual identities as risk factors, rather than targeting the structural inequities and violence that marginalized individuals must endure.
