Giving Blood for Anorexia Research

A local mum recently raised the issue of care and support for young women and girls with eating disorders. Following on from our discussions, I agreed to support the Charlotte’s Helix project, which aims to gather 1,000 DNA samples from those with anorexia, along with additional control samples from those without the condition – which I agreed to provide – to facilitate genetic research with a view to developing better cures and treatments. I was delighted to support this excellent initiative.
