We have opened registration for the Feast of Knowledge, being held in New York City. Come join us! Here is the link and the info:


https://www.eventbrite.com/e/feast-of-knowledge-nyc-2019-tickets-50301643570

Sun, March 17, 2019

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT



F.E.A.S.T. welcomes parents and caregivers, as well as all those interested in the support and treatment of eating disorder patients, to an unforgettable event. Meet caregivers from around the world, learn directly from top scientists and clinicians, and get a cutting edge look at new techniques and research. This one-day event follows the Academy for Eating Disorders annual conference in New York City and will feature speakers from that conference who will present their work in condensed form especially for parents and caregivers.

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION: $65 until December 31

REGISTRATION after December: $75

We will spend a day together learning, networking, and supporting one another in a special space: a library theater (www.caveat.nyc). The event will feature a casual family-style lunch, a book-swap, brainstorming, neurobiology exercises, and an opportunity to meet and talk with some of the leading advocates in the parent community along with some of the rock stars in the treatment world. You will participate in research, and you will go home with new skills and friends.

The theme of the event this year, appropriate to being in New York City, is "The Dance." The dance of genes and environment, of parents taking over and letting go of control during recovery, and of physical movement and exercise. The registration price includes the full day of activities, your lunch, and a coffee and snack break (you know we wouldn't let you go hungry!). Scholarship tickets may become available, and donations to cover other parents are warmly welcomed!

An evening event may be added, so let us know if you are interested and available for that as well!

This is going to be a great event, building on the success of the first FEAST of Knowledge held this past April in Chicago.

I'm going, and hope to see some of you there!  It would be great to meet up in person.

And, we've added an evening event as well.

I am so looking forward to seeing you there: old friends, new friends -- and introducing you to one another!

Hi Feast Community,

If you are planning on coming to the Feast of Knowledge now would be a really great time to sign up! I know it is still a couple of months away, but a mailing is going to go out the week of January 21 to some of the area eating disorder treatment centers and we want to make sure that all of you at ATDT have first dibs on tickets! 

So looking forward to meeting many of you at the events!
Also, don't forget to sign up for both the day and evening events! The day event will have speakers and the evening event will be fun; drinks, dinner and dancing!

warmly,

Kali
