Eating Disorders 101 for Title X and TPP Staff Webinar

Eating disorders impact people of all genders, ages, races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. Eating disorders pose a significant threat to the health of adolescents and adults, yet they are often overlooked in sexual and reproductive health care and adolescent health program settings.

This webinar for Title X and Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program staff will explore the prevalence and health consequences of eating disorders, and offer basic strategies to identify, prevent, and address them.
