December 21, 2020Weight bias is a pervasive problem in our society, showing up in our homes, physician offices and even the workplace. But weight bias isn’t just a social injustice, it’s also a public health issue due to its far-ranging effects on those who experience and internalize it. In this episode of the Business Group on Health podcast, we speak with Dr. Rebecca Puhl about the consequences of weight-based blame and shame on patients, employees and children, as well as how we can recognize and reduce weight bias.
