Thank you to all those who submitted their application to the Renata Elizabeth Withers Memorial Scholarship. This years winner is Jennifer Mooney.
Jennifer is a second year post graduate pediatric trainee at Memorial University. Over the past 6 years of medical school, she has developed and maintained a strong interest in the physiology, medical care and family dynamics of eating disorders. In September she will be applying for a 2-year pediatric medical sub speciality training program that specializes in eating disorders among youth.
In addition to her clinical training Jennifer has attended a number of eating disorder conferences around the world including Understanding and Treating Binge Eating Disorders and The International Conference in Eating Disorders.
