Obesity: It’s More Complex than You Think | Fatima Cody Stanford || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2017–2018 Epidemics Science Lecture Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Fatima Cody Stanford (2:20), a leading expert on obesity, challenges the notion that weight regulation can be determined by a simple equation applied to all persons equally and instead explores the impact of the environment and the role our brains and bodies play in the complex processes of weight regulation.

Introduction by Janet Rich-Edwards, faculty codirector of the science program, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study; associate professor of medicine, Harvard Medical School; and associate professor, Department of Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
