How F.E.A.S.T. tries to make the Internet a safer place for parents

As the first year of F.E.A.S.T. winds down, I am preparing reports for our members, Advisory Panel, and Parent Council and reviewing 2008's accomplishments.

Our Media Outreach project is one of my favorite aspects of the organization. As a heavy Internet user, I am painfully aware of how much poor and antiquated information parents encounter. This bad information leads families to poor treatment, poor follow-up, and poor outcomes. We know enough about eating disorders to do a much better job. We just aren't getting that information to the public so they can start to ask good questions of clinicians.

The Outreach Project volunteers are looking for your help. Read what they have done, are working on, and what they need from you. Help make the Internet a safer place for parents seeking information.
