boys with anorexia

A journalist for a major TV news show in the US is looking for parents of male anorexia patients. I have been interviewed and the producer is familiar with the issues, science, and family concerns about media.

If you are the parent of a male patient with anorexia and willing to talk with the producer by phone for an interview, please email me at laura@feast-ed.org as soon as possible.

Being interviewed isn't for everyone and parents MUST think carefully before doing so, but we also don't make progress in how eating disorders are portrayed BY the media if they aren't exposed to families who are thoughtful and well-informed.
