AED is meant to be a platform for health professionals who work in the eating disorders field and other individuals who are personally affected by eating disorders (e.g., family members). This involves teaching, networking, support for finding therapists around the world and discussions with other health professionals.
AED's main event is the annual International Conference on Eating Disorders (ICED), a scientific conference that spans research and education from basic science to the treating clinician and back.
The ICED also has a teaching day that provides in-depth training for clinicians.
AED members also have access to various listservs for discussion of a broad range of topics.
AED has a continuous education (CE) program in which professionals can earn credit toward their licensure requirements.
