A common illness, it touches the same amount of people each year as Alzheimer’s or heart disease. Half of all Americans personally know someone with it. And nearly 10-15% of those affected are men. It’s an eating disorder.

For almost twenty years, Rogers Memorial Hospital and our Eating Disorder professionals have worked with patients to provide personalized treatment plans. By focusing on physical, psychological, interpersonal and social issues, we inspire self-empowerment so each individual develops the courage and determination they need positively change their life.

We ask you to join us this week for our three part series entitled Uncovering Eating Disorders.

  • Part 1: A Silent Problem in the Workplace
  • Part 2: Males and Eating Disorders
  • Part 3: Eating Disorders, Depression and Anxiety
