Priti Chawla is a visionary, research-driven business leader, community builder, and strategist who is advancing an advocacy platform for people living with obesity and mobilizing the quality of care they receive.
Having seen weight bias and discrimination play out in her own life, Priti understands the delicate psyche of those who are struggling with body image issues and experiencing obesity stigma. She learned that fad diets do not work, that weight management is not about merely having the willpower to avoid high-caloric foods, and, most importantly, that her self-worth is not determined by the number on a scale.
With Obesity Matters, Priti hopes to redefine obesity through the lens of empathy and compassion, shifting to a positive narrative, and helping more people live their best lives. She is making a difference in the world.
