Dr. T is quoted in a new article on FiveThirtyEight!

A new article published yesterday, called “How The Stigma Against Obesity Harms People’s Health,” discusses the negative effects of weight stigma. The article draws upon Dr. T’s recent paper in BMC Medicine, in which she and her colleagues provide a current overview of the weight stigma literature. Dr. T also alludes to her COBWEBS model of weight stigma and says: “And that’s what makes weight stigma doubly pernicious. In addition to the pain and stress it causes, experiencing it makes the original condition more exacerbated.”
