"But You Don't Look Like You Have an Eating Disorder, and Other Avoidable Barriers to Recovery," Sarah Thompson, a writer, eating disorder recovery coach and consultant, will share stories from their own recovery after having an eating disorder for 18 years.

The presentation focuses on barriers and access to eating disorder treatment, including fatphobia, homophobia, and transphobia. Thompson, who identifies as larger-bodied and queer, is a thought leader in the Health at Every Size®, Body Trust®, and LGBTQIA+ communities. They author the popular blog Resilient Fat Goddex and have been featured on such podcasts as Food Psych, Do No Harm, and Fearless Rebelle Radio.
