Dana Sturtevant had a wake-up call when she realized her diet and weight-centered nutrition research work wasn’t really helping improve health and well-being. She co-founded Be Nourished, a community outpatient clinic and professional training institute. Recognized as one of America’s top radical dietitians, Dana encourages movement toward a compassionate, weight-inclusive model of self-care to address body oppression, heal body shame, and disrupt patterns of chronic dieting and disordered eating.
