Upcoming Events:

November 2-4th in Brooklyn, NY Kai will be attending and presenting research at the National BEDA Conference 

What is BEDA 2017?

The Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) National Conference, co-organized and in partnership with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) will be held from November 2-4 in Brooklyn, NY at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Conference will feature a Keynote on research in marginalized communities and the impact of food insecurity on those with eating disorders; key findings and discussion will be shared. During the conference, educational tracks for both providers and those with eating disorders will provide for an exchange of experiences on how to increase treatment accessibility and effectiveness.

The event will draw an estimated 400 participants – healthcare providers, individuals with eating disorders and their families, educators, and advocates. Participants will be focused on education around the treatment of binge eating and higher weight eating disorders as the primary reason to attend.

The event includes two days of general and panel sessions, practical workshops and round-table discussions. All general/panel sessions will feature a community that is typically marginalized and affected by eating disorders. The conference is organized to recognize the intersection of these communities amongst one another and the eating disorders community. Planners aimed to continue efforts by the partner organizations to center marginalized voices in leadership and programming.
