Envisioning an Iowa free of Eating Disorders

The experience of having an eating disorder and supporting a loved one with an eating disorder is a complex, painful, costly and, at times, deadly experience. Too many Iowa lives have been impacted by disordered eating. EDCI was founded in 2010 with the hopes of providing timely, informed and helpful information to assist those who are currently struggling, recovered or supporting an individual with disordered eating. We hope to empower and educate providers to provide the best quality care to the citizens of Iowa.
