from HealthLeaders Media
"Disrespect" shown by some healthcare providers "may discourage future visits or delay essential care that could lead to weight loss or the detection of diseases associated with obesity," a researcher says.

But a new report suggests that cultural changes in healthcare and properly educating clinicians about obesity might be the secret weapon to engaging these patients.
