Professional Member Dues: $75 per year

Membership will renew July 1st of each year.

Should you choose to not renew your membership, your provider listing will be removed from our website. You are welcome to rejoin EDCI as a Professional Member at any point in time!

Qualified Professional Member Applicants include any provider who provides direct services to persons or families impacted by eating disorders and is currently licensed/certified by a State of Iowa health-related Board. Mental health professionals must have a master’s degree or higher. Nutritionist/Dietitian professionals must hold state licensure as a Registered Dietitian. For professional members seeking a provider listing on the EDCI website, we request applicants have familiarity with the HAESⓇ model and do not prescribe weight loss practices in their treatment of individuals with eating disorders. If you are not familiar with these practices, you are still welcome to join EDCI as a Professional Member without a provider listing on our website. To be a Professional Member with a provider listing, you will need to sign a Statement of Practice during the application process.

We look forward to connecting with all of our members!
