More about Ellen:

Ellen Fitzsimmons-Craft, PhD is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, USA, and a licensed clinical psychologist. She has established programmatic lines of research centering on the use of technology for eating disorder prevention and treatment, eating disorder screening, sociocultural etiological and maintenance factors for eating disorders, eating disorder recovery, and college mental health.

Ultimately Dr. Fitzsimmons-Craft’s work aims to disseminate evidence-based interventions from research to practice as well as extend treatments in ways that will reach the large number of people in need of care for mental health problems but who are not receiving services. She is a Fellow in the Academy for Eating Disorders and is a current recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health Career Development Award.

Dr. Fitzsimmons-Craft is passionate about increasing access to scalable, evidence-based mental health services, collaborating with numerous industry partners, non-profit organizations, including the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD), and statewide groups in the U.S. in order to do so. Her work has been featured in high-profile media outlets such as the New York Times, NPR, the Wall Street Journal, Wired, and Forbes.
