Founder’s Council

The Founders of NEDA include past board members of founding organizations and others who were critical to the development of this national movement and the formation of the National Eating Disorders Association. In acknowledgment of their many years of dedication and service, the council is one way to support their continued engagement, involvement and connection to one another – and with NEDA. The board members came from founding organizations Eating Disorders Awareness and Prevention (EDAP) and American Anorexia Bulimia Association of New York (AABA).
