Investigating eating disorders in children

The CHEO Research Institute’s Spotlight on Research video series showcases some of their leading researchers in these priority areas.  Over the coming months we will be sharing some of these videos through the CAPHC Conversations Blog.

Dr. Mark Norris discusses his research on a recently diagnosed illness called ARFID – Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder. Dr. Norris and his research team conduct an eating disorder program at CHEO that works with children to determine the risk factors involved with ARFID and gather evidence for best treatment practices.


The CAPHC team is always interested in learning more about what is happening in the paediatric health care community. If you have a program, event, website, or initiative that you would like to share with the country, email for more information.
