Very pleased to share that we're doing something new next month: two virtual book club meetings. Have you ever read a book and wanted to ask the author questions? Would you like to hear what other parent caregivers learned or what their questions might be?

We will be welcoming Jennifer L.. Gaudiani, MD CEDS FAED, the author of Sick Enough: A Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders on February 12, and Lauren Muhlheim, PsyD, is the author of When Your Teen Has An Eating Disorder: Practical Strategies to Help Your Teen Recover from Anorexia, Bulimia & Binge Eating Disorder on February 21.

If you enjoy and get something out of these, we'll schedule more.

This is really exciting. 
Jennifer Gaudiani seems to be a clinician who has a great insight into the medical parts of ED along with being very supportive of parents of young adults. Looking forward to reading Sick so we can come up with some questions. 
Lauren Mulheim's book is a great manual for starting FBT.
