I wanted to tell everyone about a free film. It’s produced by NORMAL; a national non-profit that educates about eating disorders (including binge eating disorder). The Film is called “ED 101”. (My Binge Eating Disorder Association colleague, BEDA Founder and CEO Chevese Turner, is one of the experts interviewed.) For those of you who are in a position to educate others, it also comes with a full curriculum and support materials.
This 35-minute film illustrates the four types of eating disorders through expert interviews, personal family stories, and rock musical footage sung by Broadway and American Idol performers.
The film is sponsored by Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, and distributed through a collaboration of 15 non-profits — All details are available at http://www.normal-life.org/ED_101.php%20
