2014 Boston NEDA Walk
MEDA partners with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) on a variety of initiatives throughout the year. On Sunday, April 6, 2014 MEDA hosted the second Boston NEDA Walk, a one-mile walk to bring our community together for a mindful, celebratory event. This was an incredibly successful event, thanks to all the dedicated donors, participants, and volunteers! Learn more on the Boston NEDA Walk webpage or contact Brittany Fraser for more information. Check out pictures from the day!
Eating Disorders Awareness Week
MEDA celebrates National Eating Disorders Awareness Week every year by hosting events designed to educate the community about eating disorders and inspire hope for those who may be struggling. Eating Disorders Awareness Week typically takes place at the end of February; stay tuned for EDAW 2015!
MEDA hosts an Annual National Conference to bring professionals from across the country together to share ideas and discuss critical issues about eating disorders treatment. Learn more about MEDA’s 2014 Conference.
Networking with a Purpose
Networking with a Purpose provides a unique opportunity for members of our Preferred Provider Network to get acquainted, share information and experiences, and learn from others in the field of eating disorders in an informal and educational setting. A different topic will be discussed by a guest speaker during each of the quarterly meetings.
