Eating disorders affect 30 million people in the United States, according to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). To help promote better body image and eating disorder awareness, Congress passed the Long-Term InVestment in Education for Wellness (LIVE WELL) Act, which could mandate body image education in federal nutrition programs for all people regardless of weight or body type.

Some of the personality traits — endurance, pain tolerance, persistence — that helped Minnesota Nordic ski champion Jessie Diggins capture gold at the 2018 Pyeongchang winter Olympics were the very same characteristics that fueled the eating disorder that once threatened to sideline her athletic career.

Intended to fill a gap in outpatient treatment options for adults, the WELL Clinic will accept patients dealing with a range of conditions, from anorexia and bulimia to binge eating, yo-yo dieting and other dietary disorders. “This clinic is a unique and much-needed resource for the Philadelphia community,” said Evan Forman, a psychology professor at Drexel and director of the WELL Center. “Patients will have access to evidence-based solutions in health-related behavior change.
