In the school of public health, Prof. Latzer developed an MA Nutrition program, with an emphasis on behavioral and psychological related factors. The program was opened in 2009 and she was the head for 5 years.  Prof. Latzer has published more than a hundred peer-reviewed articles in scientific and clinical journals, as well as 46 book chapters. She edited five books four of them on eating disorders.  During her sabbaticals in NY USA, she was visiting professor at Yeshiva University, Ferkhauf Graduate School of Psychology, and at the Nutrition and Behavior and psychology departments of Columbia University, teaching EDs courses.  

Clinically, Prof. Latzer was the founder and director of the EDs Institution, in the Psychiatric Division in Rambam, Health Care Campus, Haifa )1992 -2016(. The Institution’s treatment model is based on a multidisciplinary framework for treating EDs and focuses mainly on family therapy. Based on this model, she developed a 2-year training program at the EDs center for multidisciplinary experienced clinicians. The EDs Institution in Rambam is one of the largest in Israel, serving as a model.

Social activities: Prof. Latzer is among the founders of the Israeli Association for EDs, served as its president for 5 years. She has been a member of the organizing and scientific committees for ten Israeli EDs international and national conferences, active in the American Academy of EDs, its international task force and serves as the Israeli chair of its European chapter, and member of the EDs Research Society.

Prof Latzer developed and established an innovative project, (2008), a rehabilitation house for young women with EDs. (“Zeida Laderech”), and received a prestigious prize from “the Leonore & Larry Zusman – JDC” for excellence in the field of Social Services in Israel, and from the national mental health rehabilitation association, in acknowledgment of her contribution to the research, prevention, and treatment of EDs both nationally and internationally.  

Additionally, over the last 2 decades, she has been active as an advisor to the Israeli Parliament (“Knesset”) and has contributed dramatically to the change in treatment policy in EDs. From 2010- 2012 she served as an advisor to the former Knesset Member Dr. Rachel Adatto, who was working to pass a new Bill through the Israeli parliament. She was part of the process from the outset, providing both evidence-based data and clinical input to Members of Parliament. The new legislation prohibits the appearance of underweight models (BMI of 18.5 or lower) in commercial advertising. This Bill has the potential to make a difference for public health, mainly for female adolescents trapped by the unrealistic thin body ideal of models. The Bill proved to be of international significance. Prof. Yael Latzer is known both locally and throughout the world, as an expert in the field of EDs, treatment, and research.
