Hospital to explore eating disorders during presentation
Yampa Valley Medical Center hosts a free presentation about "Eating Disorders in Children and Adults" at 6 p.m. Jan. 25 in the hospital's conference rooms. Family medicine physicians Dr. Brian Harrington and Dr. Lisa Harner will discuss circumstances that contribute to eating disorders, how to recognize the warning signs and how to help someone who has an eating disorder.
Nearly 10 million American women and 1 million American men suffer from eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia or binge eating. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental health disorder. For example, 5 to 10 percent of anorexics will die within 10 years of developing the disease.
The presentation is open to the public. All are welcome.
