BU associate professor and chair of the Department of Health Sciences at Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences and Walden senior consultant Paula Quatromoni is currently researching adult patients who have both binge eating disorder and Type 2 diabetes. Patients have been receiving conflicting advice between the two conditions – for diabetes treatment, being told to “eat less, move more”, and for binge eating disorder, being told to “eat more regularly”.

To better understand the patient experience being caught between these two approaches, Quatromoni has orchestrated a series of interviews with Walden patients to gather details about their lived experience with binge eating disorder and diabetes.
