142. The Brain’s Influence on Eating Disorders: Combining Neurobiology with Nutrition
Presenters will share the brain bases of eating disorders and how neurobiological mechanisms maintain eating disorder symptoms.

One robust model for how these topics are integrated into a cohesive, multidisciplinary treatment program will be presented.
