Striegel-Moore on “New Normal” in Eating Disorders

They’re wrong, says renowned eating disorder researcher Ruth Striegel-Moore on a recent episode on WNPR’s “Where We Live.” Striegel-Moore, the Walter A. Crowell Professor of University Social Science and a professor of psychology, discussed her research, which indicates that minority populations and men also engage in this self-destructive behavior.
