Professional Workshops and Trainings 

It is part of The Center’s mission to help provide educational opportunities and advanced training for medical and mental health professionals that result in more effective screening efforts, early intervention and improved treatment outcomes for individuals and families affected by eating disorders.  

This mission is addressed through longstanding partnerships with local medical schools and graduate training programs that involve eating disorder fellowships, internships and training courses.  Our staff also frequently fulfills speaking requests for grand rounds, continuing education events and professional conferences.  
Presentation topics can be tailored specifically to meet the needs of your professional staff.  Here are just a few of the professional organizations with which we’ve worked to provide training opportunities and speaking engagements.
