ICPO Image Bank
Not for commercial use
“The National Obesity Management Programme is delighted to see the launch of this image bank. We will only address the health of people living with obesity when we stop stigmatizing and judging the condition. A picture is a thousand words. I have done many positive interviews about obesity, the message of which has been completely overshadowed by the accompanying negative imagery. This initiative is a real step forward in shaping society to deal actively with obesity – which is now the commonest of the chronic diseases we face”
We host online zoom meetings every week. Anyone who lives in Ireland and is affected by overweight, or obesity is welcome. Details are shared in the support groups each week, meetings are usually one hour. Anyone interested must register their email once with us, and we will send the new link, for each meeting.
