Congressional Briefing on the FREED Act (Federal Response to Eliminate Eating Disorders)

In cooperation with Representative Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), the Eating Disorders Coalition for Research, Policy & Action will host a Congressional briefing tomorrow (4/10, 4:30 p.m. ET) on the FREED Act, A Federal Response to Eliminate Eating Disorders. This comprehensive eating disorders bill addresses research, treatment, and prevention services. The briefing is free and open to the public, so if you are in the D.C. area, here's the link to register. While we can't be there in person, we've got some sources on the inside, so we'll post highlights as soon as we can. We'll also keep you updated on what you can do to support the bill.

We're looking forward to what this bill can do for the eating disorders epidemic that is affecting men and women alike. Check out our CED Blog for another look at the FREED Act: http://eatingdisorder.org/blog/?p=39.
