I wanted to re-post the interview, as well as provide a link for you to check out these toolkits. If you are an athlete, a coach, a trainer, or know anyone who is, I encourage you to send around the link so that they can access and download this information! One of the best parts? It's free!! : ) Find it here! Below is the first post on my athletes and eating disorders series (or check it out here)- I will be posting the second one tomorrow! Enjoy! And for more info on the toolkits, follow this link to check out Nancy's blog post about it here.

NEDA Coach and Trainer Toolkits are Out! Part 1 : )
Not too long ago, I wrote a few posts on eating disorders and athletes. I had a chance to speak with Nancy Matsumoto, who coordinated and wrote the coach and trainer toolkits for NEDA, which are designed to educate coaches and trainers about eating disorders. According to Nancy, "One of the goals of the toolkit is to balance an understanding of the goals and methods of coaches and trainers with the perspective of the eating disorder professionals who treat affected athletes."
