Posted on Thu, Feb 27, 2014

Did you know — Nearly 20 million women and 10 million males will suffer from a clinically important eating disorder at some point in their lives. This week is the 27th annual National Eating Disorder Awareness week, which runs from Feb. 23 to March 1.

"I Had No Idea" is the theme of this year’s NEDAwareness week. Diane Girardot, MA, LPC, a Chester County based psychotherapist and Laura Carr, RN BSN at Hahnemann University Hospital and an eating disorder survivor are helping you to get in the know about eating disorders.
