Transforming attitudes towards obesity

Professor Paul Gately has dedicated over two decades of work to reshaping attitudes to one of the biggest health crises of our time: obesity. An influential figure in campaigning to end the stigma surrounding obesity, Paul balances his academic role with running MoreLife, a specialist weight management training and services provider he founded at the university in 1999.

Paul has used his own innovative research into obesity ranging from the environmental influences on obesity, to the impact of high protein diets on obese children, to grow MoreLife into one of the largest providers for tackling childhood and adult obesity in Britain.
