Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders

STRIPED is a graduate-level training initiative based at the Harvard School of Public Health and Children's Hospital Boston. STRIPED brings together experts in eating disorders, public health, adolescent preventive medicine, health law, policy, and economics, and many other disciplines to create a public health incubator, a place where transdisciplinary collaborations catalyze crosscutting, innovative approaches to eating disorders prevention.

The mission of STRIPED is to train the next generation of health professionals to harness the power of public health to prevent eating disorders and related problems with food, weight, and appearance. STRIPED strives to create a society where girls and boys alike can grow up at home in their own bodies.
