EDC Applauds F.E.A.S.T.'s Upcoming Conference

The Eating Disorders Coalition for Research, Policy & Action (EDC) congratulates the members of the F.E.A.S.T. Board of Directors on their upcoming conference in November, “The Map Ahead” where the Parent Community Charts A New Course For Activism, Treatment, and Research of Eating Disorders.

How exciting and appropriate that this conference puts mothers and fathers and other family members of those suffering from eating disorders front and center rather than on the fringes. As the first international eating disorders conference organized by parents this is indeed an historic event. We applaud you for your vision and conviction.

We look forward to being part of the rich conversations and urge others to attend this empowering conference.

A hearty congratulations to all involved in the realization of this inspiring vision!

Jeanine Cogan, Ph.D., Policy Director
