Episode 53, Part 1: Lynn Slawsky (she/hers) and Giva Ann Wilkerson (she/hers) share how ANAD helps those impacted by eating disorders


In this episode, Francis and Catherine are happy to welcome Lynn Slawsky, Executive Director, and Giva Ann Wilkerson, Program Director of ANAD (National Association of Anorexia and Associated Disorders). Lynn and Giva both describe their own experiences finding recovery from eating disorders, and they outline the many ways ANAD enhances treatment and facilitates recovery with programs like peer mentorship, support groups, and grocery buddies. The conversation concludes with Giva and Lynn’s advice for listeners trying to find recovery.

We are grateful for the time Lynn and Giva took to share their experiences and work with us, and we look forward to our next episode, where we have the opportunity to interview a peer mentor/mentee pair who connected through ANAD’s program.
