The theme for this year's event, happening next week (February 22nd -28th), is "I Had No Idea." Programming centers around helping people "get in the know" toward the goals of improved education and awareness and early intervention and prevention of these devastating illnesses.
I'll be participating in the NEDA panel, "'I Had No Idea!' Athletics and Eating Disorders: What Fitness Professionals Need to Know and How They Can Help" on 2/24 in New York City. Later in the week, I'll be a guest in a NEDA Twitter chat: "A Slippery Slope: Identifying Disordered Behaviors Before they Go Too Far" along with Cristin Runfola, PhD and author, Jenni Schaefer. You can follow my Twitter (@drstaceyla) for more information on these events.
