Etiqueta Seminari

Speaker: Helen Burton-Murray, PhD is a psychologist at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and an Assistant Professor in Medicine and in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Burton-Murray is the Director of the MGH Gastrointestinal (GI) Behavioral Health Program and her clinical research focuses on the intersection of gastrointestinal functional/motility disorders and eating disorders, including development of behavioral health treatments.

Over the past decade, there has been burgeoning interest in the relevance of eating disorders in gastroenterology, particularly with the advent of a newly defined disorder called avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). In this talk, Dr. Helen Burton-Murray will: (a) highlight the relevance of eating disorders, including ARFID, in gastrointestinal disorders, particularly DGBI; (b) provide recommendations on screening for ARFID.
