The high and insidious occurrence of eating disorders, association with a wide range of disorders and the myriad of treatment difficulties, cause these illnesses to be among the most devastating of human conditions.
They have a profoundly negative impact on those who are affected, their families and are increasingly being recognized as public health concerns. Indeed, eating disorders are associated with the highest rates of morbidity and mortality among all mental disorders.
If you are a student and would like to get involved with FREED and its cause to help end eating disorders, we are currently accepting applications for spring, summer and fall 2018! All three opportunities provide access to learn about eating disorders, prevention, education, research, advocacy and a glimpse into the day-to-day operations of a non-profit organization.
