Building back better, faster and fairer.
Bringing together clinical expertise, lived experience and new research, EDIC 2022 will showcase and debate approaches for re-establishing our eating disorder services in the most equitable, accessible and impactful way possible as we rebuild after the pandemic.
EDIC’s programme is designed by experts and influenced by the experiences of people who have recovered from their illness or family members who have supported a loved one through recovery.
Keynotes will present on topics of critical importance, while workshops, short paper and poster presentations will explore a wider range of emerging research findings.
EDIC 2022 is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the cutting edge of research and to explore how it can be used to improve policy and practice for people affected by eating disorders.
EDIC 2022 scientific programme committee
“I think it's long overdue to have more contributions from people with lived experience at major conferences and so I found the Beat Ambassadors' input really excellent.”
“It was brilliant - good mix of presentations, short papers and workshops. Lots of information offered overall in all categories and a good mix of topics. All very thought-provoking.”
“Fantastic conference – it's not often that you get to 5.30pm on day two of a conference and still feel energised and want more!”
All best endeavours will be made to present the programme as printed. However, the conference organisers (Beat) and the Scientific Programme Committee reserve the right to alter or cancel, without prior notice, any arrangements, timetables, plans or other items relating directly or indirectly to the EDIC 2022 Conference, for any cause beyond its reasonable control.

The conference programme relies on delegates having an academic understanding in the field of eating disorders and whilst elements of the conference may be of interest to those outside of the academic field, due to the programme content, design and the nature of the research and debates being presented, the conference content may not be suitable for someone currently suffering and could be significantly triggering for some.
Speakers are sent guidelines prior to the conference around sensitive presentation. The conference organisers (Beat) accepts no responsibility for the content of keynote, workshop or short paper sessions.
