Abstract

This narrative symposium was inspired by the American Medical Associations (AMA) decision to label obesity a disease. How do people who have been classified as obese feel this decision impacts on their lives? Personal narrative authors offer their experiences with obesity and healthcare. The symposium also hosts five commentary articles from scholars and stakeholders with a wide range of perspectives. These articles pull from themes in the personal narratives and bring them into dialogue with the current scholarly literature on this topic.
