This is the final week to call your Representative and ask for their support for a GAO study on eating disorders prevention and treatment for military members!

Servicemembers and their families have higher rates of eating disorders than the civilian population. We are asking our Representatives to sign-on to a letter requesting the Government Accountability Office to conduct a study on:
  • What steps the military is taking to screen for and prevent eating disorders within servicemembers during the entire life cycle of service
  • How many military members and military families sought treatment for an eating disorder
  • A comprehensive review of the availability and access to eating disorder treatment for military members and their families
The letter is led by Representatives Seth Moulton (D-MA) and Walter Jones (R-NC) and can be read here.
Please help us build support for this important study by contacting your Representative!

The deadline for your Representative to sign-on to the letter is Friday, June 8th.

It is important to me that the Representative sign-on to this letter because...

Thank you."
