    Enhance your skills in the identification and management of eating disorders with clinical pearls from Dr. Rosalind Kaplan, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University and a Primary Care Physician in Jefferson Women's Primary Care. We learn who to screen for eating disorders, what questions to ask, criteria for diagnosis, common complications, and how to manage them. This is a must listen if you’re like us and don’t know much about eating disorders specified and not otherwise specified.
