Obesity, Feeding and Eating Disorders, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder among LGBTQ Youth
Alex S. Keuroghlian, MD, MPH, Director of Education & Training Programs, The Fenway Institute Boston, MA
Many young LGBTQ people contend with bullying, rejection, and other identity-related stressors at school and at home. For some, these challenges negatively affect their eating behaviors and body image, which can lead to excessive weight gain or loss, as well as eating and feeding disorders and body dysmorphic disorder. This webinar will teach providers how to use a culturally-responsive approach to preventing, identifying, and treating obesity, eating and feeding disorders, and body dysmorphic disorder among LGBTQ youth. We will also discuss pediatric endocrinology considerations as they relate to weight/gain and obesity among transgender youth.
As this webinar was originally recorded as part of the School Based Health Alliance’s Adolescent ECHO program, it is not available for CME/CEU Credit.
