Held annually since 1987, NEDAW is the nation's largest eating disorders outreach effort. During NEDAW health care providers, teachers, social workers, students and eating disorder professionals work to promote healthy body image and prevent eating disorders by distributing educational materials and organizing awareness raising events on their campuses and in their communities.

NEDAW events are planned in K-12 schools, colleges, hospitals, and community centers. These interactive and educational events consist of anything from panel discussions to fashion shows, body fairs to theater performances, and picnics to movie screenings. Each year these events attract nationwide public and media attention to eating disorders and the pressures, attitudes, and behaviors which contribute to them.

Specifically, we are looking for women who developed eating disorders later in life (post college and beyond). We are also looking for women from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds. First names only, but we may want to also run a very small photo.

Binge Eating Disorder Study

Caucasian women (ages 18-38) with BINGE EATING DISORDER who live in the Los Angeles Metropolitan area are sought for participation in a graduate research project on memories of childhood and adolescent family mealtime experiences. Participation will include an interview about childhood and adolescent family mealtime issues, a demographic questionnaire, and a binge eating questionnaire. This study will fulfill the requirements of my doctoral dissertation. Each participant will be provided with a $20 dollar stipend for her participation. A summary of the findings of the research will be provided to those participants who indicate that they want feedback about the results. As very little research exists on BINGE EATING DISORDER, your participation will help to further the knowledge and treatment of this disorder. Your participation is voluntary.
