Associate Professor and Chair Paula Quatromoni was interviewed by The New York Times about the pressure on female college athletes to cut body fat.
“This practice is steeped in weight stigma, stereotypes and misinformation. It is not based on sport science, and rarely is the practice managed or monitored closely by qualified health professionals to have any positive outcome. Instead, it can have devastating consequences for the athlete and will sabotage the very goals that athletes and coaches pursue.” – Associate Professor and Chair Paula Quatromoni
