Community Commitment

WEIGHT BIAS - negative attitudes about individuals with excess weight – can have a negative and lasting impact on the quality of healthcare these individuals receive. The COPE team recognizes the important role that healthcare professionals play in addressing the problem of weight bias. COPE now offers a one-hour weight bias sensitivity training tailored for the nursing profession and approved for one contact hour of continuing education. Please contact Rebecca Shenkman, COPE Director, for more information and to schedule this training at your site.

March 2020 update: COPE Nutrition Counseling service has gone virtual! 

 

COPE is now offering VIRTUAL nutrition counseling services to employees under the University’s health plan. Even if you’re used to working from home one or two days a week, having to work from home ALL week is certainly a break in the routine, and this break certainly comes with eating and exercise pitfalls that WE can help you work through. Libby Mills is here to listen and guide you through this transitional time. Appointments are now available via phone or Zoom with more dates and times added.
