“Hello, my name is [insert name] and I am a constituent living in [city, state]. I am calling to urge you to support increased research funding for eating disorders through the Department of Defense.I’d also like you to sign on to a letter led by Senators Klobuchar, Baldwin, and Capito that prioritizes the eating disorders provisions included in the 21st Century Cures Act. Eating disorders will affect 30 million Americans in their lifetimes and they have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Your support of these initiatives is so important to me!”
