Congratulations, ED Dad! It will be good to hear a dad's voice at ICED.  As we all know it's important to get the whole family on the same page when fighting ED--a very important topic.

Dear ATDT,

Appears from feed back from the room that this event went well & certainly got the clinicians in the room thinking about getting Male Loved Ones actively involved in the treatments that they offer. Also the technology to have me in the room real time via a large video screen went well, no pause delay at all. This also showed the clinicians how they can use technology to remote link for treatment sessions when anyone cant be there physically.
