Local Native to Provide Eating Disorder Treatment

By | In The News | No Comments

A West Palm Beach woman  has long dreamed of: offering on-site, affordable treatment services for under-insured or uninsured patients struggling with an eating disorder. Johanna Kandel spent a decade of her formative years battling — and eventually recovering from — her eating disorder. She’s spent every day since October 2000 — when she founded The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness — helping others battle theirs.

The nonprofit organization’s latest venture is one that Kandel has long dreamed of: offering on-site, affordable treatment services for under-insured or uninsured patients struggling with an eating disorder.

The Alliance’s Psychological Services center makes it the nation’s first facility where eating-disorder patients can receive individual treatment regardless of their insurance coverage.

“This is something we’ve wanted to do for more than a decade,” Kandel said of the program that will be staffed by two post-doctoral fellows and supervised by Clinical Director Dr. Joann Hendelman. “It’s going to save lives.”

Sunrise Cares Committee Chairperson Angela Celey expressly thanked everyone who participated in helping Sunrise Cares realize their goal of helping others, especially the players themselves who donated and the numerous individual donations of people who financially helped out.
