PEKIN, Ill., July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp™)
The four-day symposium is slated for February 7 – 10, 2019 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, California. The next several months will be action-packed with announcements of the keynote speaker line-up, nearly 100 research presentations and networking events and the annual Imagine Me Beyond What You See art competition, among many others.
"Year after year, our intention is to provide training options that are unparalleled in our field and do it as innovatively as possible so that professionals can, over four days, network and participate in presentations that build and develop skills and knowledge," said Bonnie Harken, the iaedp™ Foundation's Managing Director.
"This year's theme is really the essence of what our industry and the thousands of treatment professionals are all about – providing the care and emotional inspiration for recovery," added Harken.
For first-time Symposium attendees, scholarships are offered which cover a majority of the registration fees for the conference. Applications are available now through November 30, 2018 and can be completed online. Financial awards are provided based on answers to the application questions.
