Actress Karla Mosley Joins Roster of Ambassadors for the National Eating Disorders Association

NEW YORK CITY  — January 14, 2019 — The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders, announced the appointment of Karla Mosley as the newest NEDA Ambassador. Mosley, an actress known for her role on The Bold and Beautiful, plays the first transgender lead character on broadcast TV.

“I am deeply honored to continue working with NEDA, Mosley said. “In the past 10 or so years, I’ve seen awareness around eating disorders increase as a result of NEDA’s efforts. But we still have a long way to go. It’s important that those suffering from eating disorders and their families know that they are not alone, and that our government and insurance companies support access to recovery.”

As a new mom and black woman, Karla understands the struggles women go through and aims to reach pregnant women and populations who have been underserved and underrepresented in the eating disorders field.

NEDA Ambassadors are changemakers and advocates who use their personal experiences and platforms to raise awareness of eating disorders, combat diet culture and promote body acceptance. Mosley joins other talented ambassadors like LGBT brawn model Ryan Sheldon, model Iskra Lawrence and social media influencer Gina Susanna. 

“Karla brings a wealth of knowledge and heart to her work,” NEDA’s Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships Kristen Snow said. “We are inspired by the thoughtful way she seeks to end stigma and challenge myths about eating disorders.”

Connect with NEDA Ambassadors through social media, the NEDA blog, or at a NEDA Walk or event in your community. Visit https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/about-us/neda-ambassadors for more information.
