Our Goals

  • Connecting clinicians and researchers passionate about improving or disseminating resources for people with eating disorders and their families through technology
  • Introducing our SIG members to other organizations or groups with a similar mission, including AED’s Social Media Committee
  • Building a centralized hub of information about new/existing services that leverage technology to extend or expand eating disorder treatment, especially to those who may not otherwise have access
  • Expanding the understanding of technology-related issues and laws in various countries
