Partnering with a nationally-focused resource like NEDA provides a broader platform for community programs as we each work to increase awareness, connection, and support for disordered eating and recovery from eating disorders at the local level,” commented Seitz. “It’s a collaboration that is a great resource for me as I work within my organization to serve those in need. I am honored to be part of this group of committed and passionate advocates.” “
BTCF is honored to stand in support of service and advocacy for eating disorders, disordered eating, positive body image, and overall mental health and well-being,” added Hopkins.
