For Your Health Radio - Eating Disorders

On today’s For Your Health radio show for Thursday, January 23, 2020, we focused on eating disorders. We were informed about a very debilitating and deadly disease by our special guest
Kaitlyn Axelrod. Today’s hosts were Jessie Fawcett and Loretta Bailey.

Our special guest, Kaitlyn Axelrod, is a Program and Outreach Coordinator from Sheena’s Place.
Sheena’s place is an eating disorder support centre for individuals over the age of 17 that are impacted by an eating disorder in some way whether it be themselves or a loved one. We discussed the demographics of people with eating disorders as well as the range of participants that Sheena’s Place provides services to. We also discussed what kind of eating disorders exist and their symptomology as well as the signs that parents should look out for in their adolescent children. Further, we discussed the stigma around eating disorders and how it impacts folks seeking recovery. These were just a few of the many areas we covered regarding eating disorders.

We, as hosts, learned a lot from this broadcast and hope that the listeners did as well.

Stay tuned for next week’s episode of For Your Health to learn more about how you can take care of your health!
