In the summer of 2021, a public service announcement (PSA) about Black Women and Anorexia was completed by Dr. Cindy Bulik at the UNC Center for Eating Disorders. In this video, Dani Coan, one of our research assistants, shares her personal experience as a Black woman with anorexia. This PSA challenges treatment providers to expand and change their thinking about eating disorders to be more inclusive of the Black community.
