Our Mission

The UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders is a world leader in treatment, research, and training.

Treatment. We care for our patients and their families by joining the latest scientific evidence with extensive clinical expertise. We help guide our patients and their families through recovery by providing personalized medical, nutritional, and psychological care.

Research. We are leaders in international research efforts to identify the biological causes of eating disorders and to develop more effective and efficient treatments. We work together to share knowledge about eating disorders from a variety of disciplines.

Training. We are dedicated to training the next generation of physicians, clinicians, and basic and applied researchers in eating disorders. We are passionate about translating eating disorders research for the public and transforming how eating disorders are understood and treated.   

We adhere to the highest ethical standards and value honest communication and collaboration. As part of one of the world’s great research universities and one of the nation’s leading public schools of medicine, we strive to meet and exceed the expectations of our local, state, national, and global communities.   

You can recover from an eating disorder and we can help!
