EDIC

EDIC’s programme is designed by experts and influenced by the experiences of people who have recovered from their illness or family members who have supported a loved one through recovery.

Keynotes will present on topics of critical importance, while workshop recordings, short paper and poster presentations will explore a wider range of emerging research findings.

EDIC 2021 is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the cutting edge of research and to explore how it can be used to improve policy and practice for people affected by eating disorders.
