Launch of the National Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders
The National Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders (NCEED) is dedicated to educating and training healthcare providers on the evidence-based management of eating disorders and improving eating disorder awareness among the public. NCEED’s mission is closely tied to the Anna Westin Act provisions within 21st Century Cures and Mental Health Reform Act and is thus poised to have meaningful and lasting impact on the ability for individuals with eating disorders to be detected and provided with evidence-based treatment. This week’s launch is the first in a series of programming phases for NCEED and will offer an initial set of resources for healthcare providers and the public as well as information on upcoming events of interest. Subsequent phases will provide online trainings, interactive webinars, and a mechanism for submitting technical assistance requests. Learn more at their website, https://www.nceedus.org/.
