Virtual Presentation about Eating Disorders
Wednesday, November 17 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
LIVE Virtual presentation • Event is FREE
Eating disorders can affect anyone. What sometimes appears as a “picky eater,” someone hyper-focused on their body or food for athletics or looks, or someone simply trying to control their anxiety, can develop this devastating disease.
Eating disorders are no longer considered rare, and recently have been referenced as an epidemic within the adolescent and young adult populations.
Unfortunately, it can be very well hidden for too long, creating a health emergency in that person. Thankfully, with the right knowledge and tools, families, coaches and educational personal can spot the early signs, and be one of the most effective influences in recovery.
Join us for a virtual presentation by one of the leading experts in eating disorders, Michael Chiumiento, PsyD. Dr. Chiumiento will begin with a 60 minute presentation to explain:
- the facts and myths of eating disorders
- the subtle and not-so-subtle warning signs
- resources and how to get help
He will end with a live Q&A period.
Anonymous questions can be sent in advance to NAParentResourceNetwork@gmail.com
