BE REAL. Legislative Advocacy
BE REAL works with STRIPED, the eating disorder prevention incubator at the Harvard T.H.Chan School of Public Health, on legislation that envisions a society where children can grow up at home in their own bodies.
STRIPED’s mission is to use the power of public health to prevent eating disorders. BE REAL and STRIPED are working together to turn research into policy action to reach the millions of youth at risk for eating disorders and other related problems with food, weight, and appearance. BE REAL advocates in partnership with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
