The Schubert Center for Child Studies will host a talk by Rachel W. Goode, assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Wednesday, Oct. 11, from noon to 1:30 p.m. via Zoom. Goode will give a talk titled “No Longer Invisible: Shedding Light on Eating Disorders in Black and Brown Young Women.”
Goode’s research interests include developing, implementing and evaluating equitable and community-engaged interventions to treat obesity and eating disorders.
During this talk, she will discuss eating disorders in Black and brown young women, from increased risk of binge-eating disorder to lack of access to diagnosis and treatment and cultural aspects that impact care. She also will share work on how the pandemic has increased disparities in care.
Goode will be joined by discussant Kelly Bhatnagar, co-founder and clinical psychologist at the Center for Emotional Wellness, an adjunct assistant professor at Case Western Reserve University and president of the Academy for Eating Disorders. Bhatnagar will share her experiences treating Black and brown youth for eating disorders in the local community.
