On behalf of Body Brave, NIED, and WWEDC, we are pleased to share that 216 registrants attended the inaugural Body Peace Virtual Eating Disorder and Body Image Conference. Attendees joined from nine Canadian provinces, the U.K, United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Turkey!
Focusing on the value of lived experience as evidence, this year’s conference brought together survivors, caregivers, and health professionals to learn from 40 keynotes, speakers, and panelists, as well as from each other.
We exceeded our expectations and are looking forward to organizing next year’s conference, reviewing and incorporating our lessons learned! Stay tuned for the call for abstracts to be launched early in 2020! We hope to see you there!
