Here are some of the recent feedback comments on
her presentations at Tufts Medical School and The Joint Conference
of Harvard Dental School and Harvard Medical Schools:
Ms. Pearl was lovely to learn from and I loved how she taught a complicated and potentially harmful subject with kindness and respect.
Ms. Pearl’s lecture was very informative and eye-opening. I definitely plan to use a team-based approach when helping my future patients deal with eating disorders.
I thought this lecture was incredible, and I really appreciated the care and sensitivity that was taken in teaching this information.
A hard topic to talk about. I had some type of eating disorder when I was younger and it helped me to understand my own experience. So thank you.
Ms. Pearl’s lecture was incredibly well done. The topic of eating disorders is complex and emotional and I felt that it was handled well.
