I so look forward to meeting as many of you in this community at this event! We're excited for each opportunity to connect in person, to learn from one another, and to discuss the science and practice of eating disorder treatment!

If you have questions, or want to donate a bit to help others attend, or are looking for a discounted hotel room or to share rooms, let me know!

I'm so excited to put faces to screen names! So many of you have been such a blessing to me. [smile][smile]
19 yo D. AN - since about 15 years old. WR quickly - but the last four years have been tough. Since Sept. 2017, two residential stays, now in IOP, fighting a relapse. ED is hanging on, mental state not great, can't get her to remain at a weight long enough or high enough to see mental healing. She's on a gap year that will likely now turn into two.

I really wish I could come...but have something else that day which I can't cancel. So I hope that everyone who is lucky enough to be able to attend will report back to us about how it was and what you discussed and learned!
