Getting a broader message to the public about ALL eating disorder patients, including young men!

My friend, Matt, does a terrific TV interview that I believe will dispel some myths, and reminds everyone to stop treating male patients as an afterthought.

Just because the ratio of patients is lower doesn't meant the ILLNESS is less serious for men!!



(and, like most things in the ED world, false assumptions have led to poor statistics - we now know that it is not 1 in 10, it is at least 1 in 5 - and that poor diagnosis and a lack of treatment that welcomes males is an enormous problem)
