Seeking participants for a compensated research study on weight stigma

We would like to invite you to participate in a research study with UW’s EMBARK (Eating-related Methodology, Behaviors, and Risk) Lab to understand the effectiveness of the Body Advocacy Movement (BAM) workshops for health professional students.

Study participants will be randomized into either a workshop group or a brochure group. The workshop consists of two, two-hour virtual participatory sessions and the brochure includes educational materials to read independently. Participants in both groups will complete a series of 20-minute surveys and activities at three different time points prior to and after completing their assigned task. All participants will be compensated for their time with $40 Amazon gift cards!

If you are willing to participate in this study, please follow this link for a screening survey:
