Jennifer L. Gaudiani, MD, CEDS-S, FAED talks about weight-inclusive approaches to eating disorder recovery.

Join us this month to learn from Jennifer L. Gaudiani, MD, CEDS, FAED, the Founder and Medical Director of the Gaudiani Clinic. This talk will explore why focusing on weight as a primary outcome does more harm than good, how classic health outcomes associated with weight loss are achieved or surpassed by improving physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness, independent of BMI, and why a weight-inclusive approach should be offered to everyone.
