Just got an email from one of my medical students, who let me know about an NPR article regarding weight bias and stereotypes. See below…
Hi Dr. Kahan,
I am sure you already know about this, but on the off chance your summer has been too busy, I thought I’d send it your way. This is a refreshing perspective for the (somewhat) mainstream media!
I was eating dinner with some college friends last night, most of whom are on diets because ‘fat is bad’ and I was really excited to share with them the perspective you gave us. Not sure I really convinced anyone, but its a start right?
Hope you and your family are having a great summer!
