Held Online

Despite what many individuals may believe, eating disorders are not about food. Nevertheless, effective eating disorder treatment necessitates that those who are affected develop a healthy relationship with food in addition to working to eliminate their eating disorder behaviors. Dietitians are critical in providing the education and support so essential to this process.

In recognition of Black History Month, this presentation will highlight the role of nutrition and explore the importance of cultural perceptions regarding food and body among Black women and girls. Attendees will explore treatment considerations, learn how to set goals when working with a dietitian, acquire skills to identify medical complications and at what point in treatment to incorporate a multi-disciplinary team.
