There is so much I learned at the NEDA 09 conference it is hard to know where to begin in sharing all of the information I gathered. So, I'll just share the papers that are on top of the stack of information I gathered, none is necessarily more important than another. It is all urgent, as we need to work quickly to find causes and better treatments for these life altering disorders.
Mainly I gained HOPE. Hope that full recovery is possible for all people affected by eating disorders. I have my Hope glass stone on my desk to remind me every day that it isn't just the name of my business - it is a real concept!
I met researchers from UCSD who are doing research studies that they need volunteers for. That is good news for those of you looking for no cost family therapy for teens with Anorexia Nervosa.
I'll be tweeting about this and their program seeking women recovered from Anorexia or Bulimia Nervosa. You could receive up to $1200 for completing brain imaging scans and assessments.
Give them a call or email: 858-534-8062 or firstname.lastname@example.org The people at University of California, San Diego Medical Center will answer your questions.
Now back to organizing all of my new contacts that I made. Feel free to contact me - that will free me up to finish the book.
