Charting Pediatrics

Dec 6, 2022

Data from multiple countries have shown an uptick in eating disorder presentations in youth during the pandemic. Here in Colorado, we have certainly seen an increase in medically unstable eating disorder patients admitted to the hospital. As part of our series this year on mental health today we will focus on disordered eating, which encompasses a spectrum of different problems in children. I am joined by two experts between them with many decades of experience caring for children and adolescents with disordered eating so this is going to be a lot of fun.

This episode is part of our 12-episode mental health series where we aim to give primary care providers useful tools and relevant clinical information to support them in the care of patients with mental health needs.

Today I am happy to be speaking with Dr. Amy Sass and Dr. Jennifer Hagman.

Dr. Sass works in the adolescent medicine department at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is a professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.  Dr. Jennifer Hagman works in the child and adolescent psychiatry department here at Children’s Colorado and is professor at the University of Colorado school of medicine.
