I reached out to ANAD in the 70’s when i was struggling with an eating disorder. Their Founder Vivian Meehan has been my role model and the reason i founded our local Eating Disorders Resource Center in 2006. I wanted to offer our local community the same awesome services ANAD provides including their network of resources for support, awareness, advocacy, referral, education, and prevention.
ANAD is the oldest organization aimed at fighting eating disorders in the United States.
We have implemented many of their tools in our local effort including their excellent model for peer to peer support groups and their Guidelines for Educators.
ANAD epitomizes the definition of collaboration. ANAD continues to be EDRC’s “go to’ for the latest on all areas related to eating disorders.
Thank you for being an invaluable resource for me and for those struggling with eating disorders and their families
