In this op-ed, Associate Professor of Nutrition and Health Sciences Chair Paula Quatromoni argues for system-wide changes to protect athletes from body-shaming, abuse, and dietary neglect.
“The only way forward is by breaking the silence to raise awareness and demand change. When athletes tell their stories, as Mary Cain has, they protect other athletes and put an end to the suffering in silence. Together, no one is left alone wondering if they are the one who is broken. It’s the system that is broken.”
