The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is the leading non-profit organization in the United States advocating on behalf of and supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Reaching millions every year, NEDA campaigns for prevention, improved access to quality treatment, and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders.
The History of NEDA
NEDA was formed in 2001, when Eating Disorders Awareness & Prevention (EDAP) joined forces with the American Anorexia Bulimia Association (AABA) – merging the largest and longest standing eating disorders prevention and advocacy organizations in the world. The merger was the most recent in a series of alliances that has also included the National Eating Disorder Organization (NEDO) and the Anorexia Nervosa & Related Disorders (ANRED).
The 2013 Annual NEDA Conference, Of Monumental Importance: Directing the National Spotlight on Prevention, Treatment, Research & Policy, brings together professionals, researchers, educators, people in recovery and their families to connect and learn from one another. You can tailor your conference experience by choosing sessions from 6 tracks: Treatment, Family, Co-Occurring Conditions, Diversity & Special Issues, Educator & Outreach and the NEDA Hosted Track. Sessions led by top eating disorder experts from across the country are compelling for first-time and previous attendees alike. It’s an ideal opportunity to come meet others, share stories and foster connections in a warm, welcoming environment.
The Conference will be held in Washington, D.C. October 10-12, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.
