I was so pumped on this conversation. I was actually at a dinner with JJ Virgin, who has also been on this podcast, and someone mentioned Jason and how he had an eating disorder as a young man. We get so many men who ask us if we have services for men and I’m so excited to say that we’re in the process of doing that. But I just wanted to get Jason on the show to share his story. He is so passionate about what he’s doing in the world and I know that’s going to come across in his voice.
