The Renfrew Center Announces Creation of Clinical Advisory Board

The Renfrew Center, the nation’s first residential eating disorder treatment facility, established in 1985, and the largest network of eating disorder treatment centers, announced the creation of The Renfrew Center’s Clinical Advisory Board. The Board is comprised of key professionals in the eating disorder field who will provide guidance and feedback to The Renfrew Center Clinical Excellence Board (CEB). Members include: Amy Banks, MD; David H. Barlow, PhD.; Kelly Klump, Ph.D.; and Margo Maine, PhD, FAED, CEDS.  

Advisory Board members were chosen for their level of knowledge, leadership, reputation and insight into the current and future direction of the eating disorder field. Each member possesses a specific expertise in clinical and/or research areas that will enhance the evolution of Renfrew’s treatment model.

 “We are thrilled these four highly-acclaimed experts accepted our invitation to serve on the Advisory Board,” said Samuel E. Menaged, JD, Founder and President of The Renfrew Centers. “Their support and insight on the clinical direction of Renfrew’s programming will allow us to continue to be the pioneer in the treatment of eating disorders and offer the highest-level of patient care.”

Renfrew’s treatment philosophy emphasizes a respect for the unique psychology of women, the importance of a collaborative therapeutic relationship, and the belief that every woman needs to actively participate in her own recovery. Drs. Gayle Brooks and Susan Ice, internationally recognized experts in the eating disorder field, oversee the clinical operations of Renfrew’s 17 locations. The Renfrew Center works directly with most major insurance companies.

The Renfrew Center, the pioneer in eating disorder treatment and research, has treated more than 65,000 women with eating disorders and other behavioral health issues and trained more than 25,000 professionals. It has facilities in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas.
