Instruments and Institutions Interviews

The instruments by which we estimate obesity, bodies, food and physical activity are often taken for granted, and the institutions that contribute to our understandings of obesity and its drivers often sit in the background, but have their own histories and reasons for being. These interviews shed light on both.
