Researchers at Columbia University offer free bulimia treatment

Hi Laura,

We love your website here at the Teen Bulimia Study at Columbia University. Way to go for making a difference and shining a light in this field. (thank you)

We're hoping that you might be interested in helping us with a post on our Teen Bulimia Study, http://www.teenbulimiastudy.org. The more insight we have into bulimia, the closer we get to answering questions about recovery and the disease. We currently only need 10 more teens with Bulimia to complete the study for insight on brain mapping and restoration in teen bulimics.

As background, this is a NIMH-funded study of adolescent girls with Bulimia Nervosa (BN), ages 12 to 17 years. The aim of the study is to further our understanding of the neurobiological factors that may lead to the development and persistence of BN. 

Compensation (up to $900) or treatment for BN in our eating disorders clinic (free of charge) will be provided for participation.
With only one child psychiatrist in our clinic, we have limited resources to provide treatment to all of our BN participants but are looking to recruit teens who might already be in treatment elsewhere. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this email!

Best,
Kate

P.S. here is a summary of the study:

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center are interested in learning about the development of Bulimia Nervosa. We are looking for 10 more girls (12 to 17 years) who binge eat and purge to participate in the study. They can receive inpatient or outpatient treatment at no cost. Monetary compensation (up to $900) is also available. Please call the clinic (212-543-5739) and visit the study website for more details: http://teenbulimiastudy.org/
