Approximately 30 million individuals in the United States have been diagnosed with an eating disorder, but only one in 10 will ever receive treatment. These complex conditions can seriously impact students’ physical and mental health, often requiring both medical and psychological intervention.
Watch this webinar from our Student Wellness Series to hear Dr. Lisa Strohman and Mary Padden from Digital Citizen Academy discuss the various types of disordered eating and how these issues impact educational potential.
A psychologist, attorney, author, and mother, Dr. Lisa Strohman established Digital Citizen Academy to help keep families safe from online dangers. Her background working as a visiting scholar with the profiling unit at the FBI during one of the most tragic school shootings in the U.S. helped create her passion to help proactively prevent and educate students, educators, and parents on issues related to technology.
Mary Padden received a BS in Public Health and Nutrition from the University of Arizona in 2014. Before joining Dr. Lisa Strohman as her administrative assistant, she worked for three years at Scottsdale Unified School District in Community Education.
