'Brave Girl Eating' book on eating disorders available in paperback
It wasn't until 8th grade graduation, "when we saw her from across the room that we realized how thin she was," Brown recalls.
She knows now that she had misconceptions about anorexia. While her daughter had not lost weight, she hadn't gained weight, and that was a problem. Brown, an assistant professor of magazine journalism at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, wrote about the personal journey of her daughter and the whole family in her book, "Brave Girl Eating: A Family's Struggle With Anorexia."
She spoke about her experiences in a Health Link on Air radio interview, airing at 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 9.
