Notes on Language and Images:

We encourage the use of person-first language (e.g., “adults with obesity” or “20% of children ages 12-19 have obesity” and not “obese adults” nor “20% of children are obese”) when discussing topics like obesity and other chronic diseases, as well as respectful images.

The Obesity Action Coalition has more information – please see the Guidelines for Media Portrayals of Individuals Affected by Obesitypdf iconexternal icon.
