Plan to attend the one national conference on eating disorders where families learn from each other and from the nation’s leading treatment experts.

This year’s conference promises to be an especially valuable one for families both new to eating disorders as well as those who have been battling eating disorders for quite some time, and for treatment providers. With more than 30 sessions to choose from, there is something for everyone. Program highlights include:

· Family basic sessions on the progression of eating disorder care, insurance issues, medical complications, sibling issues and more

· Prevention strategies for eating disorders and body image issues

· Sessions for treatment providers on treating co-morbid eating disorders and substance misuse, advances in treatment, and effective parent/teen group facilitation

· General sessions by leading eating disorder treatment experts, authors and speakers, and a panel discussion with Miss America Kirsten Haglund, actress Scarlett Pomers, tennis pro Zina Garrison and champion triathlete and former Marine Andrew Preston on the pressure to be thin in high risk professions. Supermodel, author and body image activist Emme will moderate the discussion.

· Unlimited networking opportunites
