The Harris Center for Education and Advocacy in Eating Disorders at MGH
The Harris Center for Education and Advocacy in Eating Disorders is a non-profit research and education center based out of Massachusetts General Hospital. Through interdisciplinary research, we seek new knowledge to better understand eating disorders, their detection, treatment and prevention - and we strive to share that knowledge with the community. At the heart of the Center is a commitment to promote the healthy development of children, women, and all at risk for eating disorders. Our programs include an NIH-funded longitudinal study on anorexia and bulimia nervosa, public outreach events in the Boston area, the Matina S. Horner Summer Research Fellowship for emerging scientists and students, as well as numerous collaborations with researchers in eating disorders, endocrinology, mood disorders, and neuroscience nationwide.
