Huffington Post Article Explores Eating Disorders In Adults

A new article from Huffington Post’s Melissa Jeltsen brings the stories of those who have lived with eating disorders in adulthood into the light by exploring the internal and external forces that often contribute to these potentially deadly illnesses.
