Eating Disorders Coalition of Kentuckiana
Did you know anorexia is the most fatal mental disorder? While many young adults with this disorder die from starvation and physical complications, others die from suicide. Now there is hope for those suffering from this eating disorder.
The newly developed Eating Disorders Coalition of Kentuckiana is a group of providers dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eating disorders through educational programming. Join us for our inaugural programs.
