I’m Diana Castillo, I’m Colombian, I’ve been living in Italy for 12 years, I’m married and I’m the mother of a teenager.
I have lived with obesity since I was very young. I have personally experienced the weight of stigma and stereotypes already in my family and then at school, at work and in some social contexts.
I love to volunteer, I have been collaborating with patient organizations for 10 years and I find it very inspiring to work together with other ECPO colleagues to improve the quality of people living with obesity, trying to change the narrative of obesity at the social, political and clinical. I am aware that only together and by joining our forces can we change the present and the future of people living with this disease.
