Come hear Natalie Boero talk about how and why obesity emerged as a public health concern and her book "Killer Fat: Media, Medicine, and Morals in the American 'Obesity Epidemic,'" which examines how and why obesity emerged as a public health concern and national obsession in recent years. It enters the world of bariatric surgeries and diet programs to show how common expectations of what bodies should look like help determine what interventions and policies are considered urgent in containing this epidemic. This book offers an alternate framing of obesity based on the insights of the “Health at Every Size” movement. Natalie Boero is an associate professor in the Sociology Department.
