Posted at 7:39 AM on December 29, 2006 by Bill Wareham
At 9 a.m., one parent shares with Kerri Miller her story about the challenges of treating anorexia. Harriet Brown is the author of One Spoonful at a Time, which appeared in the New York Times Magazine. Her story illustrates a growing trend in the treatment of eating disorders: involving the parent, who was considered a big part of the problem. Also joining Kerri is Katherine Loeb, a professor of psychiatry and director of the Eating and Weight Disorders Program at Mt. Sinai school of medicine.
At 10 a.m., Kerri looks back at some memorable news items that defined the year. She's joined by Jeffrey Dvorkin, executive director of the Committee of Concerned Journalists and Alex Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center on Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.
