Media Advisory – Legislators to Advocate Eating Disorder Education, Treatment Bills

Senator Chuck McIlhinney (R-10), Senator Daylin Leach (D-17) and Representative Steven Santarsiero (D-31) will host a press conference in support of legislation that would improve education, identification and treatment of eating disorders on Tuesday, April 8 at noon in the Capitol Media Center.

The press conference will focus on Senate Bill 1284 and House Bill 1959, proposals that would allow for the voluntary creation of eating disorder screening panels and require schools to provide educational information regarding eating disorders to parents. The legislators will be joined by representatives of the National Eating Disorders Association and other eating disorder education advocates.

Members of the media are invited to attend.
