'Skin and Bones' Miss Universe Underscores On-Going Challenges of Eating Disorders Epidemic
Date:4/24/2009

The Renfrew Center Experts are Available for Interviews

PHILADELPHIA, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Stories are circulating around the globe about Australian Miss Universe contestant, Stephanie Naumoska, being dangerously malnourished. At 5'11", 108 pounds, she has a body mass index (BMI) of just 15.1, compared to the average BMI for her build, 18.5-24.9. Medical professionals and others believe that this is not only medically dangerous, but contradicts the claim that the contest promotes "healthy proportioned bodies."

Experts from The Renfrew Center, the country's leading authority on eating disorders for almost 25 years, are available to comment on this issue. The organization has treated more than 50,000 women since opening its doors in 1985 and is a partner in body image programs with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and with 2008 Miss America Kirsten Haglund.
