Welcome to the Eating Disorders International Conference 2020

Beat is delighted to announce the sixth Eating Disorders International Conference! Join us on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 March 2020 at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

With a programme designed by experts featuring speakers renowned for their work in the field of eating disorders, EDIC showcases innovative, leading research.

Organised by Beat, the UK’s eating disorder charity, EDIC 2020 is influenced by the experiences of people who have recovered from their illness, and family members who have supported a loved one into recovery, and several sessions will be supported or led by Beat Ambassadors.

Keynotes will present on topics of critical importance, while seminars, workshops and other breakout sessions will explore a wider range of emerging research findings. A planned range of fringe sessions will offer opportunities to look at eating disorders from different angles.

For academics, medical and health professionals working in the field, as well as students and trainees interested in a career in eating disorders, EDIC 2020 is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the cutting edge of research and to explore how can be used to improve policy and practice for people affected by eating disorders.

And don’t forget to check back here for speakers and topics, who will be listed as they’re confirmed.
