London eating disorder conference welcomes parents


The last time I was in London (okay, it was my first time, too - except for plane changes), I was there to share an EDIC podium with my friend Fiona. Well, this time she'll be there but I won't. Chunter, grumble, grr.

I am very envious of my F.E.A.S.T. friends who will be there when I cannot, but encourage all families to check out the Eating Disorders International Conference to be held in London March 15-17.

If you can attend, meet up with other parents from F.E.A.S.T. and take pictures and send tweets, pictures, notes - because the chap over there on the left doesn't look very forthcoming.

  1. He looks young, and like he might be having to concentrate very hard on keeping his head straight and like he can't really see or hear much - forthcoming is not in the job description I don't think!

    Will do my best to get there with camera and twitter apparatus; sorry you won't be there though.

  2. Will you be at the AED International Eating Disorder Conference in Austin? if so, perhaps we'll meet up then.

  3. Hi Laura,

    I really wanted to attend this event and even asked if it was possible to come in for free as I can't afford even a concessionary rate. But they turned me down on the basis that they are a charity and need the money to pay speakers and venue costs etc... I wanted to attend to find out more about binge eating disorder from a professional point of view, but noticed it was totally under represented in the programme of events this year... Shame they don't allow people on a very low income a comp: how many mentally ill people could afford 200 odd quid to attend...

    Looking forward to reports from your mate though.
