organization dedicated to the outreach, education, early intervention, support, and advocacy for all eating disorders.
After recovering from a long battle with various eating disorders, Johanna Kandel founded The National Alliance for Eating Disorders (“The Alliance”) as a way to give back and make a difference. Since founding The Alliance in October 2000, Johanna has brought information, awareness, and support to hundreds of thousands of individuals nationally and internationally. In addition, she facilitates free, weekly support groups, helps thousands of people gain information and find the help they need, and advocates for change on local, state, and national level.
The National Alliance for Eating Disorders (formerly The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness) is the leading national nonprofit organization providing referrals, education, and support for all eating disorders.
