For Medical Professionals

Eating disorders (EDs) can affect individuals from all age groups, ethnicities, shapes, and sizes. Both males and females are affected by these disorders. EDs are associated with serious medical complications and have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder.

Our Pediatrician Refererence Guide for Eating Disorders (PDF) is designed to help physicians recognize eating disorders, provide timely interventions, and make appropriate referrals.
