Verona resident Susan Maccia is putting her considerable energy into helping Verona families with an issue that has deeply affected hers: eating disorders.

She would like you to know that, on Wednesday, May 4,  from 7 to 9 p.m. the Parent, Family and Friends Network of the National Eating Disorders Association will be holding a panel discussion called “Eating Disorders: Voices of Hope – Path to Recovery.” Moderated by Abby Sarrett-Cooper, MA, LPC, and Omar Canosa, MD, parents, siblings and individuals in recovery will share their experiences when faced with an eating disorder and answer questions you might have if your loved one is struggling. Professionals and students can gain a better understanding of how eating disorders affect the family.

The talk is going to be held in the Alumni Theater at Caldwell College and a $5 donation is suggested at the door. Please register in advance through the National Eating Disorders Association’s Web site.

According to NEDA, as many as 10 million girls and women and 1 million boys and men are affected with an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Maccia’s daughter, Christine, told her story to the Star Ledger in 2009.
