STRIPED is deeply grateful to our longtime friend and founding supporter Ellen Feldberg Gordon. So much of what STRIPED has achieved since our founding more than a decade ago can be traced back to Ellen and her unwavering vision for a world without eating disorders.

STRIPED also is immensely grateful for the very generous support of Jennifer Perini and is so thankful for the opportunity she has given us to continue our pioneering work in eating disorders prevention.

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is pleased to announce the A Chance to Heal Fund, established in 2014, to support STRIPED. The fund will provide support to Director S. Bryn Austin’s priorities for STRIPED’s training and educational programs, research initiatives in the field of eating disorders prevention, and student trainees through tuition assistance, stipends, and research support. The Fund was created with gifts from leadership of the Philadelphia-based nonprofit A Chance to Heal to carry forward its mission of eating disorders prevention. STRIPED is grateful for the generosity of the many donors to this fund, especially Ivy Silver, Founder of A Chance to Heal.
