Chief Science, Outreach and Education Officer: Jason McCray, Ph.D.

Jason McCray, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and has been with The Center since May 2011. He became interested in eating disorders and body image while completing his doctorate work at The University of North Dakota where he studied the reactions of men to images of the male muscular ideal.  As the father of a young daughter, issues related to body image, prevention and socio-cultural influences are always in the front of his mind.  Striving to better understand these issues and how they interface with the burgeoning neurobiological research findings with eating disorder has become the focus of his professional inquiry.
