La Puma: Guest expert on obesity

Posted by Dr. Bob on February 10, 2003, at 11:39:31

Hi, everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that John La Puma, MD, Medical Director of the Santa Barbara Institute for Medical Nutrition and Healthy Weight and formerly Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine here at the University of Chicago, has agreed to be our guest expert for a week (though 2/13). See his site, at:

If you have any questions *about obesity*, just post them here (but please put "La Puma: " at the beginning of the subject line to let me know it's for him). I'll be the intermediary and pass on selected questions.

As an interesting counterpoint, during this same week, Maureen P. Dymek, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry here at the University of Chicago, will be the guest expert on eating disorders at Psychological Babble. For more information, see:

Discussion about the how this works (or doesn't) is welcome, but should take place at Psycho-Babble Administration. Thanks,


PS1: The above site discusses commercial products and services -- and unapproved or investigational uses of products. The site was not supported by educational grants.

PS2: The participation of a guest expert is intended to provide information and not advice. His responses should *not* be considered diagnosis or treatment. He may suggest an option to consider, but do *not* infer that his professional opinion is that you personally should choose that option. What specifically to do for yourself or a loved one you should discuss with a knowledgeable professional in person.
