Working with professional case writer Eric Weinberger, the STRIPED team has developed a new teaching case, “Who’s Calling Me Fat? Or, How Columbia Got Its Obesity Prevention Campaign Back on Track,” free and available to the public. The case is designed to be used by educators seeking to introduce topics in eating disorders prevention and public health into their classrooms. This teaching case is the first in a series from STRIPED designed to engage students in real-world dilemmas, problem solving, and teamwork to tackle current, high-impact issues in eating disorders prevention. The next teaching case, “‘The Governor Is Very Interested’: Or, Cost-Effectiveness Analysis for School Health Screenings,” is in line to be pilot tested later this year, then refined, finalized, and made publicly available. Stay tuned for more updates!
