Washington University looking for participants in anorexia study

(KMOV) -- Researchers at Washington University are looking for participants for one of the largest studies on anorexia.

While doctors have known about the eating disorder for some time, little is known about effective treatement. Anorexia has the highest death rate, percentage-wise, of any psychiatric disorder.

To take part in the study, your child should be between the ages of 12 and 18, live at home and be at least 15 percent below their ideal body weight.

You can call them at (314) 286-0076 or email at whitee@psychiatry.wustl.edu.
