How can digital media use affect eating disorder (ED) prevention, treatment and recovery? We conducted a systematic mapping of the current gaps in knowledge related to digital media use and EDs. 13 academics, clinicians, and non-profit staff participated in a national workshop. In two parallel focus groups, they discussed experiences of gaps in knowledge about digital media/mobile devices and EDs.
