Knafel Center,10 Garden St., Cambridge, MA

Fatima Cody Stanford, instructor in medicine and pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, will challenge the notion that weight regulation can be determined by a simple equation applied to all persons equally. Instead, she will investigate the impact of the environment and the role our brains and bodies play in the complex processes of weight regulation. Stanford will also explore how weight stigma and bias in society lead to negative health outcomes.
