Rebecca Puhl




Professional Interests:

  • My research broadly addresses bullying, bias, and discrimination experienced by children and adults who have obesity. My work has documented the prevalence and origins of weight bias and discrimination, assessed the pervasiveness and impact of weight stigma in the media, examined the effects of weight bias on emotional and physical health, assessed experiences and health consequences of weight-bullying in youth, tested intervention strategies to reduce weight bias, and studied potential policy and legal remedies to reduce weight-bullying in youth and weight discrimination in adults.
