Join Brandon Davis, PhD, on Monday, August 11, to learn more about obesity and how one’s metabolism contributes to obesity and overweight. Davis will provide a brief overview of the history of obesity as well as the current factors that maintain it. One of those factors is metabolism, which was the focus of his recent study. His groundbreaking research documented a difference in metabolism between people who are normal weight, overweight, and obese. He will explain how metabolism is measured and the implications for weight loss.
Davis will be the featured speaker on Monday, August 11, at the Grinnell Regional Medical Center SE*ED program. Held at Drake Community Library, this free program is open to the public and begins at 10 a.m. Donations are accepted.
Davis is an Iowa native who earned his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University in 2004. He has been doing work in the field of obesity since 2006.
