What are the experiences and attitudes of health professionals about Orthorexia Nervosa? Researchers at The University of New South Wales, BodyMatters Australasia, Maastricht University in the Netherlands and NorthBay Healthcare in the US are seeking volunteer research participants to learn about the experiences and attitudes of health practitioners regarding “orthorexia”, a potential ‘health food eating disorder’.
