NEW HAVEN >> Frances Chan says she’s done stuffing her face with ice cream and Cheetos just to make Yale University happy. After months of wrangling, the university finally agrees.
The 20-year-old history major has spent the past few months sparring with Yale’s health center over her low weight. Chan is 5’2” and 92 lbs., and Yale doctors were concerned her health was severely at risk.
She contended that she’s always been very thin, as were her parents and grandparents at her age.
Yet until Friday, Yale had been telling Chan she might be forced to leave school if she didn’t put on some pounds.
