OVERVIEW

The 2016 BEDA conference committee aims to build a conference experience and program based in community and the inclusion of marginalized groups to support knowledge sharing and skill building. As patients/caregivers, treatment professionals, researchers, educators, and activists alike, we will be learning to stretch our diversity comfort zones in order to stimulate curiosity, shift attitudes, and broaden our ability to bring more people with eating disorders out of the shadows.

PROGRAM FRAMEWORK

We will lift the voices of those from under-represented and marginalized communities who have not had a seat at the eating disorders treatment, research, patient/caregiver, policy, and advocacy tables. BEDA will use its influence within the greater community to highlight conversations around diversity and elevate the benefits of inclusion. With this in mind, we ask prospective speakers to use an intersectional social justice frame whenever possible.

PROGRAM CHANGES

This year’s conference features a community-like program with more general sessions and fewer back-to-back multi-track workshops. BEDA will seek novel workshops and ideas for plenaries and panels that address treatment, awareness, access-to-care, patient/caregiver issues, policy, and research issues through the aforementioned intersectional/social justice lens. The multi-track sessions will focus on specialty areas to include the medical/biological/research, dietetic, psychological, education & activism, and sports/movement settings. More innovative ideas for increasing our connection as a community are being discussed, so keep an eye out for more information as it becomes available.
