Understanding Eating Disorders: Insights from Epidemiology

Thursday, February 24, 2022 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Myths, stereotypes and misunderstandings abound in the public perception of eating disorders and who struggles with them. This talk will use an epidemiologist’s lens to consider the prevalence of eating disorders across various demographic groups. We will discuss causes, treatments, long-term outcomes, and how disparities in treatment perpetuate stereotypes.

This program is part of the Brown School Curriculum Showcase.
