“I really enjoyed my experience at NEDA. I loved the environment and the staff was super supportive and friendly. It was one of the few experiences I've had that gave me hands-on experience.”

“I started at NEDA because I valued the applied clinical experience it provided. I stayed for as long as I did because of the amazing supervisors I had, who were always understanding and kind.”

“NEDA provided me excellent opportunities to expand my breadth of knowledge about eating disorders as well as provided a welcoming environment. My experience with NEDA was a huge aspect to my acceptances to graduate programs.”

“I never thought recovery would be possible for me but it is and I love spreading that message. NEDA has been one of the best experiences of my life and has allowed me to be apart of something I have so much passion for. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.”
