February 23 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

According to Dr. Carrie Poline of the Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders, “the food-centric traditions, in conjunction with society’s drive for thinness, strongly influence the development of eating disorders in the Jewish community.” Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta invites the community to learn from a panel of experts from the Eating Disorders Information Network about the prevention and treatment of eating disorders. The panel includes:

Ruth Falkenstein, Recovery Speaker and EDIN Board Member

Jamie Glazerman, MA, LPC, Therapist at Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders

Page Love, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, Registered dietitian and owner of Nutrifit, Sport, Therapy, Inc.
