Adolescents needed for BN study!

Our colleague, Dr. Rachel Marsh, is still looking for adolescents with BN and sub-clinical BN (ages 12-18) to participate in her study. Dr. Marsh's study of adults with BN was just published in the Archives of General Psychiatry on Monday (attached) and has been getting a ton of press. See this article from the Washington Post, for example:

Please help Dr. Marsh by spreading the word about her need for additional adolescent participants. Dr. Marsh points out that it is important that we study younger patients - to see how these behavioral and brain abnormalites arise and possibly predict the development of BN.
Interested patients should call Laura at 212-543-5316
