On February 9 at 10:30 AM PST / 1:30 PM EST, Dr. Julie O'Toole, founder and Chief Medical Officer at Kartini Clinic for Children and Families in Portland, Oregon will lead a Tweet Chat conversation sponsored by Academy for Eating Disorders. The Tweet Chat will focus on “Weight Restoration 2.0”, a topic which Dr. O'Toole has written about extensively in her blog, Give Food a Chance.

To participate in the live Tweet Chat, you need to have a Twitter account. To follow or participate in the conversation, use the hashtag #AEDchat. If you’re not a Twitter user, you can still catch up on the content of the chat in AED’s Tweet Chat archive.

As Dr. O'Toole notes, with 'Weight Restoration 2.0', Kartini Clinic is moving beyond basic weight restoration - a key to recovery for all patients suffering from starvation -  toward a deeper assessment of each patient’s full physical recovery. This “state not weight” approach includes a range of health metrics, from metabolic measurements to indicators of a positive state of mental health. If you’re interested in learning more about these concepts, please read our Weight Restoration 2.0 blog post, and feel free to Tweet your questions to #aedchat during the event.
