National Eating Disorders Association

NEDACon is designed to bring together individuals and loved ones who are experiencing eating disorders or wanting to learn more about eating and body image issues for a day of local engagement with experts and community members.

In 2020, NEDACon shifted its focus in light of new safety regulations to offer virtual opportunities to host discussions related to the broader eating disorders community.
