Eating Disorders in Athletes: The Warning Signs
Dr. Adekemi Oguntala
Dr. Adekemi Oguntala has wanted to work with children from a very young age, and she has a wealth of experience working with teens and especially teen athletes. Throughout the years, Dr. Oguntala has come into contact with a wide array of issues and challenges while working with teenagers, one of which is eating disorders.
If you work with teens, you know that there are many challenges that go with the job—but do you know how to deal with eating disorders?
If you're a coach, you know how important it is to be present and active in your athletes' lives. However, not many coaches realize how common eating disorders are in teen athletes. Therefore, Dr. Oguntala took some time to share her extensive knowledge about eating disorders so that coaches will be more likely to notice if an athlete is having an issue.
