The 2018 EDRS Annual Conference

Please join Eating Disorders Recovery Support (EDRS) for our annual conference: Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zone: Integrating Creativity, Research and Technology to Cultivate Connection. This year's conference will focus on treatment access for marginalized folks, blending evidence-based treatment with creativity and clinical intuition, emerging technologies in eating disorder treatment, and more.
The festivities begin with the 2018 EDRS Hall of Fame Awards Welcoming Reception on Friday, January 26 to honor and celebrate those who have made an impact in the eating disorder field (see below), featuring our honorees, heavy hors d'oeuvres and wine, live music, and dancing.
