ANAD stands with AED to oppose BMI in schools

ANAD supports the Academy for Eating Disorders’ recent statement about the New York Department of Education’s use of BMI and Fitnessgrams in schools. This practice is common across the United States, not limited to New York. ANAD has long opposed using BMI to measure health. Instead, an approach that emphasizes wellness, not weight, would benefit students and communities.
