Quoted: Amit Bhattacharjee on Weight-Loss Drugs’ Effect


Dartmouth Now takes note when faculty weigh in on issues of the day. Here is today’s “Quoted”:

“Weight management remedies that promise to reduce the risks of being overweight may undermine consumer motivation to engage in health-supportive behavior,” says the Tuck School of Business’ Amit Bhattacharjee in an Indian West story about weight-loss drugs and related remedies and a study indicating they undermine people’s efforts to be healthy.

Bhattacharjee is a visiting professor of business administration at Tuck.
