The National Alliance for Eating Disorders maintains several affiliates across the nation that are comprised of passionate groups of professionals and advocates that are “boots on the ground” in their local communities.
Our affiliates help bring The Alliance’s vision and mission to their areas by:
- Bringing educational opportunities to healthcare providers, organizations, learning institutions, etc.
- Helping to create and maintain free, weekly, clinician-led eating disorders support groups
- Hosting events to raise funds that remain in their local communities
We are so grateful to our Affiliates for creating much-needed conversations and making a real impact in their communities and nationwide.
