“A Time to Heal”
An article about improving insurance coverage for eating disorder treatment. Written by law student Sarah Hewitt and originally published by Law and Inequality, this article advocates for reforms under the Affordable Care Act that would ensure sufferers of eating disorders can afford life-saving treatment.

Eating disorder treatment exists because—time and time again—we’ve seen how the responsible provision of care restores hope and returns light to the lives of wonderful, remarkable people—and this world stands in need of their uniquely creative voices. This we believe.”
