Dr. Sylvia Tara, The Secret Life of Fat, Interview

Dr. Sylvia Tara | The Not Old - Better Show

As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art Of Living series, we are joined today by Sylvia Tara, who holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry from The University of California, San Diego and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr Tara was a healthcare management consultant with McKinsey & Company, and has worked for the world’s largest biotechnology companies.

After an extended battle with fat, Dr. Tara became fascinated with its resiliency and embarked on a mission to better understand it. This book is the culmination of years of research and interviews with physicians, patients and leading scientists. The Secret Life of Fat will forever change how you think about this misunderstood organ.

Tickets to see Dr Tara, and hear about her new book are available at the Smithsonian Associates web site:
