NEDA 2010

This year's National Eating Disorders Association in New York will be my fourth- it's turned into an annual mommy-daughter trip, combined with a weekend of learning and a big ED family reunion. So yeah, it's one of the highlights of my year. It's nice to have a weekend where I don't feel I have to hide my eating disorder, nor is that what really defines me. I am known for my advocacy work and NOT for my eating disorder, because at NEDA, having an eating disorder isn't exactly novel.

But this year, I have something even more exciting to look forward to. After many years of submitting proposals and being rejected, I finally finally get to present this year with my former therapist Stephanie Milstein* on utilizing family and friends in relapse prevention. I was also super excited to learn that Harriet Brown will be presenting with Walt Kaye this year, too.

The NEDA Conference webpage can be found here. I will add updates as soon as the program information becomes available. Registration generally opens in May/June. I would love to plan a meet and greet with others who are going, whether it's a brief "hi, how are you?" or something more lengthy.

*It's an awful picture that's all stretched and pixel-y, and I can vouch that her hair looks much better in person! LOL

That is really awesome! When is the conference?
Still don't really know how to do this comment-leaving with the name & all...

That's ANOTHER reason (actually with Stephanie and Jane it's another three reasons) to get saving for that air ticket. I really, really want to come.

Congrats! What a great honor for you. I wish I could go, but it NEDa comes at an awful time for me with another big conference a 3-4 weeks later. It's not doable at all with work this year, but hopefully someday I'll be able to go. I'd love to meet all of you!
