About Pediatric Eating Disorders Prevention Training

Part of STRIPED: the Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders

Effective treatments for a range of eating disorders (EDs) are well-established, yet the majority of those who struggle with an ED never receive treatment. This is especially true for males, communities of color and people living in larger bodies, resulting in significant disparities in diagnosis and treatment. To address this critical need, Boston Children’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health established the Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders (STRIPED), a public health incubator that equips professionals with the expertise and skills needed to take on the challenge of eating disorders prevention.

Over the past several years, there has been a growing call for clinical training for pediatric primary care providers on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of eating disorders in children, adolescents and young adults, as well as how to perform screening and appropriately refer patients to specialized care.

As part of the STRIPED initiative, we offer a free online CME course, on how to screen, recognize symptoms and make referrals for treating eating disorders in a pediatric primary care setting: “Screening, Symptom Recognition & Referral to Treatment for Eating Disorders in Pediatric Primary Care Settings.”
