Here at the University of Florida we have a 100% online course, MEL 4600 Diseases of Eating (open to the public during the summer term), which is directed at the theorized relationship between pathological eating and addiction. Important course topics include pediatric and adult obesity; as well as anorexia, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. The various options for treatment; such as medications, psychotherapy, and surgical interventions, are described. The course is divided up into two major sections:
1.) Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia, and related disorders
2.) Obesity and Food Addition.
