Help By Giving Blood?

Want To Help Eliminate Eating Disorders?  Read On...And Give Blood!

ANGI(Anorexia Nervosa Genetics Initiative) is an international study on the genetics of anorexia nervosa.  ANGI is the largest and most rigorous genetic investigation of eating disorders ever conducted.  Researchers in the United States, Sweden, Australia, and Denmark will collect clinical information and blood samples from over 13,000 people (male and female) with a history of anorexia nervosa and 13,000 individuals without an eating disorder.  ANGI represents a global research effort to detect genetic variation that contributes to this potentially life-threatening illness. The goal of the research study is to transform our knowledge about the causes of eating disorders to work toward greater understanding and ultimately a cure.

If you are interested in participating, your contribution would include a brief survey and a blood sample.  If you have never had anorexia nervosa, but still want to contribute, we invite your participation as well.  Participants receive a $25 Amazon gift certificate.

Only with your participation can we achieve our goal of eliminating this devastating illness.

To find out if you are eligible to participate, visit this link and fill out the survey:

Alternatively, if you would like to receive fliers and brochures to spread the word about ANGI, we will be happy to send those.
