Yvette Nicole Brown recently sat down with BLACK ENTERPRISE to discuss the “It’s Bigger Than Me” obesity awareness movement. The movement is set to launch the “It’s Bigger Than Me series” moderated by Brown and featuring a panel of influencers and healthcare professionals. This series will be the continuation of the successful "It's Bigger Than Me Live" tri-city tour from last year. The purpose of this movement is to inform people about the cultural and health related challenges surrounding obesity.
Brown told BLACK ENTERPRISE that when she was growing up, obesity was not seen as a disease. She expressed her hope for the campaign to help create new allies and advocates who understand the seriousness of the disease. Brown explained that the series will talk to influencers, doctors, and people living with obesity to discuss body positivity and health. The series will begin on March 8 and will continue until mid-April.
