Description

The Mount Sinai Eating and Weight Disorders Program is conducting a federally funded study for children and adolescents with symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa (AN). The purpose of this study is to test two treatments for children and teenagers who have some signs of Anorexia Nervosa but not all. The study will test whether these treatments help children and teenagers from developing the signs of AN.  If a child is 10-17, is medically stable, and is developing signs and/or symptoms of an eating disorder, s/he may be eligible to participate.
