Not A Walk - Awareness Fundraiser

Every February the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) spearheads the national effort to increase awareness of eating disorders and the impact eating disorders have on individuals and loved ones. You may have seen efforts or even participated in previous awareness events such as the annual NEDA walk in October. The Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa (EDCI) is proud to host an awareness fundraiser with a focus on caring for ourselves through rest and joyful movement. We are turning the traditional “awareness walk” on its head with a team-based event we call Eating Disorder Awareness (Not a) Walk Fundraiser or #notawalk for short. We hope you join us in spreading our message of joyful movement!

Professional Consultation Group

EDCI hosts a monthly professional consultation group for providers working with eating disorders. Participants are welcome to bring a case for consultation or join to listen, offer insight, or observe. Therapists, physicians, dietitians, nurses, and students are welcome. The group meets virtually via zoom on the third Thursday of every month at 8am. For more information or to receive the zoom link to attend the group, email the organizer, Kim Tallon (k.tallon@edciowa.org).
