Free, open, expert forums on Eating Disorders.

As part of our awareness mandate, NIED is committed to hosting a regular series of symposia throughout the year. Here, you have the chance to hear from people in the front lines of Eating Disorders. These include clinicians, nutritionists, parents with loved ones struggling with an Eating Disorder, and both recovered and current sufferers.

While the initial symposia will be held in the Great Toronto Area (GTA), we are working with healthcare professionals and interested parties to extend the reach of NIED Symposia across Canada.

Workshops are FREE.
