  • Overview

    Imagine going into a doctor's office, putting on a gown and finding that it won't wrap around your body. Or, having your blood pressure taken when the cuff doesn't fit around your arm. These are just a few of the problems obese women deal with as medical patients. Dr. Emily Merrill, department chair for nurse practitioner studies at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, discusses with host Dr. Lisa Mazzullo the challenges, stigmas and frustrations associated with treating obese women. They also discuss the attitudes and perceptions of doctors, medical students and nurses when it comes to treating overweight women.
