I thoroughly enjoyed the EDRC event featuring Dr. Linsey Utzinger from Stanford University, Department of Psychiatry. The presentation was excellent and of value to me in regards to my work in the field of mental health and eating disorders. The EDRC is a valuable resource in the community providing up to date, comprehensive information on a wide variety of subjects pertinent to the treatment of eating disorders and mental health. I would highly recommend attending future presentations. Jeannie Anderson, LAADC
