Event: Experts from Kartini Clinic for Children and Families and Pediatric Associates of the Northwest hosted a live webinar to discuss a case of a patient with severely disordered food intake and activity.
One of many critical learning points from this event: "Weight loss in childhood is not normal. You have to hold onto that concept. Because even though it isn’t desirable for a 15-year-old girl to weight 250 pounds, it’s not a good trade-off for her to weight 90. In fact, she’s much more endangered at 90 than she was at 250.” -Dr. Julie O’Toole
