Eating disorders research highlighted on CBS2

Professor of Psychology Melinda Green was featured on CBS2 in a story about her research on eating disorders on Sept. 10, 2018. The National Institute of Mental Health recently awarded Green a grant for nearly $400,000 to expand her work.

The funding provides resources for a three-year study to gather data on 180 participants that aims to reveal the most effective ways of treating eating disorder symptoms in women. The project will include 10–15 Cornell student researchers, four graduate students, and a full-time postdoctoral Fellow. The team will have an office on the Cornell College campus and one in Coralville (2140 Norcor Ave., Suite 107).

One of the student researchers was also interviewed by CBS2.

“It’s been really powerful for me to give back in this way to further the field of research and treatment,” said Gabby Carlson ’21 in the story.
