Military eating disorder advocates see win in 2022 NDAA

The military has seen a 26% rise in eating disorders in recent years. Health advocates are calling the House passage of the 2022 defense authorization bill a win for helping those service members and their families. The bill expands intervention training for military health professionals and lengthens the amount of time dependents can use TRICARE benefits for help. Federal News Network’s Scott Maucione talks about the issue with The Eating Disorders Coalition for Research, Policy and Action’s Chief Strategy Office Jillian Lampert.
