Introduction... On this week's podcast episode we discuss what appears to be the tried and true tradition of bias against overweight and obese people in the health field. I would love to say that I am shocked by the findings but growing up always on the heavier side it was quite evident that things are different when you are overweight in the doctor's office. What to look for... Listen to the show as I discuss just what happened to bring this podcast episode to the light.
