Dr. Weiner has over 25 years of experience in treating EDs, and founded ERC with Dr. Emmett Bishop in 2008. (Check out the site here.)You might remember a post a few months ago that I wrote after my trip to Denver (follow this link if you missed it), but my experience there was wonderful. The treating professionals are experts and leaders in the field, and are doing so much to educate and support individuals and families impacted by eating disorders. In his first post for the Huff Post, he drives home the point that eating disorders are the deadliest mental illness around. It's great that he is blogging on such a well read forum, as education and myth busting about eating disorders is needed-- it is so crucial that these facts are getting out there. To read more about his career, check out his bio on the ERC website here. And remember, especially on a Monday!!- that a little positivity can go a long way!!
