National Eating Disorders Association

A Program for State and Federal Advocacy

NEDA established the STAR Program to legislatively advocate for awareness, education, early intervention and prevention programs, funding for research, and improved access for the treatment of eating disorders. STAR is driven by passionate volunteers who lobby for change by speaking with legislators, mobilizing members, and forging alliances with other groups who share our vision. You don’t need experience to make a difference! Contact for more information.
