  • Overview

    When providing care for a loved one who is suffering from an eating disorder, it can be overwhelming and exhausting. Sifting through the information and options for treatment can be astounding.

    EDCI’s upcoming caregiver event, At Home with Eating Disorders, has one goal: to help. We aim to provide practical information that you will be able to bring home to your family and implement into your daily routine as a caregiver.

    Please join us for a FREE in-person event on Saturday February 26 at 9am at West48 event center in West Des Moines. ***Lunch and refreshments are included***

    In lieu of registration fees, and if you are able, we kindly ask you consider making a donation to EDCI in any amount. Donations allow us to continue providing awareness, education and training to caregivers and providers in Iowa.
