Based at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Boston Children’s Hospital, the Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders (STRIPED) launched in 2009 to train health professionals in eating disorder prevention. We use public policy and advocacy as critical tools to change the world in which we raise our children. We strive to create a society where girls, boys, and people of all genders can grow up at home in their own bodies. While we cannot legislate good health, we can change laws in ways that increase a child’s ability to grow up with a healthy body image and without an eating disorder.
