Weight Bias in Health Care

Overweight and obese patients frequently feel stigmatized in health care settings, and face stereotypes and prejudice from health care providers.
These stigmatizing experiences (also called ‘weight bias’) jeopardize patients’ emotional and physical health. The Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University (www.yaleruddcenter.org) has released this new video in response to a growing concern about weight bias in health care. The video, hosted by celebrity and activist Emme and featuring Rudd Center experts including Dr. Rebecca Puhl and Dr. Kelly Brownell, uses expert commentary and dramatic representation to increase awareness of bias and stigma that overweight and obese patients encounter in health care. Equally importantly, the video presents a range of practical strategies to help providers reduce bias in their clinical practice, and to optimize the health care experience for their overweight and obese patients.

For this we ask the hard-hitting questions – How will we be testing AI in healthcare? How can we understand the blind spots and bias models? And how can we be sure its pros are outweighing its cons?

5G: Shaping the Future of Healthcare / Episode 3 – The Medical Futurist

In this episode, I talk about why you won’t be able to receive care remotely without the upcoming 5G revolution.

Digital health technologies swarm healthcare making patients the point-of-care. Sensors used at home, artificial intelligence-powered applications, digital health technologies, portable diagnostic devices, telemedicine, genome sequencing data in the cloud and many other solutions have been making connectivity a primary issue in healthcare. By connectivity, I don’t mean wires and Bluetooth, but a vital upgrade that’s called 5G.

But what about the concerns about radiation and the hazards of this technology? Let’s also go through those issues, then decide whether you think 5G will kill or save us.
