Health Care Outreach
Share the message of FA with your Health Care Professional
We encourage members to reach out to health care professionals with whom we have exciting relationships. The miracle of our abstinence is an entry point for conversations with them about your experience of food addiction and recovery.
Health care professionals include physicians, nurses, medical assistants, dentists, dental hygienists, aestheticians, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, mental health workers, etc. They are in a position to hear from suffering food addicts and their family members, and many are eager for resources that can help
Here are some ways you can share the message of FA with your health care professional:
- Hand them a Health Care Brochure
- Refer them to the web page “For the Healthcare Professional”, where they can find descriptions of FA, on the online version of the health Care Brochure, and podcast recordings of members’ stories.
If they ask for more information, you can contact the Public Information Committees (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com ) of your local Intergroups or Chapters and ask them to arrange an information session, including the Health Care Provider Slide Show.
