Weight gain during the pandemic: An obesity medicine specialist explains
“The impact of the pandemic on the lives of Americans will be felt for years, if not generations, to come. This includes its alarming effect on health behaviors that contribute to the already formidable challenge of obesity in this country. Now, more than ever, we must look for creative solutions within the broader health ecosystem that can help individuals adapt their behaviors, in spite of socio-environmental challenges, to prevent, manage, and maybe even reverse chronic disease. The very health of our nation depends on new solutions to our country’s age-old societal, cultural, and behavioral challenges.”
