David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD

Dr. Ludwig is a Professor at Harvard Medical School and School of Public Health, and a practicing endocrinologist and researcher. He directs the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children’s Hospital. His research focuses on how food affects hormones, metabolism, body weight, and well-being. Described as an “obesity warrior” by Time magazine, Dr. Ludwig has fought for fundamental policy changes to restrict junk food advertising directed at young children, improve the quality of national nutrition programs, and increase insurance reimbursement for obesity prevention and treatment.
