The Prevalence of Eating Disorders in Transgendered Populations

Over the last year I've been working at a Residential Eating Disorder Facility for Adults and as some of you may or may not know...I'm a graduate student at Palo Alto University! One of my classes this quarter asked that I make this and I thought I'd share with you guys. Why I chose this topic: Since working at my site I saw a need to better serve my transgendered patients. So many of my patients expressed frustration with the lack of awareness regarding the intersectionality and comorbidity of Eating Disorders in Transgendered populations. I share this with the intention to build awareness and seek support in providing my transgendered people with culturally informed treatment.

What I'm looking for: I would love to hear feedback, learn more about new research or training opportunities, new resources or any way I can be a better ally.
