Katherine Flegal Flegal's 2013 paper was criticized by Walter Willett of the Harvard School of Public Health, who called it a "pile of rubbish . . . No one should waste their time reading it." Soon after Flegal's paper was published, the dean of Harvard Medical School, Jeffrey Scott Flier, convened a panel of experts to discuss the paper at Harvard. The panel met on February 20, 2013, where its members stated that Flegal's paper contained several methodological errors. For example, panelist Frank Hu said that Flegal's selection criteria "ruled out high-quality studies of 6 million people," and that these studies, combined with those Flegal included in her review, showed that the highest survival rates are in people of normal weight. However, many researchers accept the results of Flegal's 2005 and 2013 papers and see them as an illustration of what is known as the obesity paradox.
