Independent Study Course
At the Harvard School of Public Health, we offer the independent study course SHH 300 “Independent Study in Eating Disorders Prevention: A Strategy Incubator,” which provides mentorship from STRIPED faculty to help students generate novel, transdisciplinary strategies to prevent eating disorders and the spectrum of disordered weight- and shape-control behaviors. Students will work closely with Dr. Bryn Austin and Dr. Kendrin Sonneville to develop innovative approaches for prevention that expand beyond the bounds of current thinking in the field. The product of this independent study is a written proposal for an innovative transdisciplinary eating disorders prevention study.
Applications to be accepted in Spring 2014.
