Traditional treatments for anorexia prioritize psychology and BMI restoration, and tend to omit considerations of biology, as well as the connections between malnutrition and brain function. In this seminar, Dr. James Greenblatt, world-renowned expert on nutritional psychiatry and bestselling author of Answers to Anorexia, will discuss proactive approaches to nutrition repletion and proven, evidence-based strategies to help patients find lasting relief.

Upon completion, students will be able to substantiate the clinical utility of a functional medicine approach for AN, and safely incorporate evidence-based treatment strategies into existing therapeutic models to maximize patient outcomes.
- Analyze the biological functions of zinc, essential fatty acids and magnesium and their relevance to AN symptoms or pathogenesis.
