The full programme for the 5th Annual International Weight Stigma Conference is now available on the conference website at stigmaconference.com/programme
Also, we are still trying to raise funds for the WSC Bursary Fund. As a non-profit event, our budget tends to be very tight every year, and we rarely have funds available to assist those without funding or on low incomes who may struggle to attend. Last year we tried crowdfunding our bursaries for the first time and your generosity made this a very successful endeavour, providing seven bursaries for those in financial need. So far this year, we have raised enough for two bursaries, but we still need more.
Thank you to all those of you who have donated so far. If you haven’t yet, please, please consider making even a small donation to the fund, and sharing the webpage among your colleagues and networks. It is so gratifying to see the support of the weight stigma community and the academic community more generally make this possible. The funding site is: gofundme.com/stigmaconf2017. If you are attending this year, you can also make a donation during the registration process. Thank you so much.
