Today, Dr. Carolyn Pearson Carter joins Kathy, and their topic is risk factors for binge eating disorder and purging behaviors. They go into detail on negative urgency and impulsivity, which we believe will “click” with many of our listeners.

She received her B.S. in neuroscience and behavioral biology from Emory University in 2007.
