Eating Disorders and Families

An informal evening for parents of kids with eating disorders.

Eating disorders can be isolating for families as well as for those who have them. This program gives parents a chance to connect with other parents, share challenges and successes, and learn more about the positive role families can play in eating disorder recovery.

Dr. Daniel Le Grange, director of the University of Chicago Eating Disorders Program, will discuss how families can help a child or teen with an eating disorder.

Harriet Brown, author of Brave Girl Eating, will describe her family's battle with their daughter's anorexia.

Through excerpts from the book, frank talk about eating disorders, and Q&A, Brown will energize and inspire families struggling with eating disorders.

Meet us for coffee and join the conversation!
