The Harris Center for Education and Advocacy in Eating Disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital is currently conducting 25-year follow-up clinical interviews with participants of the Longitudinal Study of Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa. This seminal study has yielded over 40 published papers about eating disorders, exploring topics such as recovery and relapse, alcohol and substance use, depression, pregnancy and medical complications. The present study seeks to better understand the long-term course of anorexia and bulimia by addressing the following questions: What factors predict recovery? Who gets better and who does not?
The HMS student role would involve assisting in various aspects of study activities and participating in weekly research meetings. The student, under the mentorship of the Harris Center staff, will be expected to design a project that addresses potential clinical applications of the Longitudinal Study of Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa.
