Here are 3 interesting points that Michelle made while sharing a family physician’s perspective on healthcare:
- Quality healthcare looks at the whole person’s well-being rather than focusing solely on metrics like weight or BMI.
- There needs to be caution within the medical community about using weight as a primary indicator of health.
- Medical professionals can have better conversations with their patients by asking open-ended questions, avoiding assumptions based on body size, and providing support tailored to the individual needs of the patient.
