  • Phoenix-Mesa, AZ (1888PressRelease) March 15, 2011 - A goal was met and a record set when over 450 participants attended the 2011 International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) Symposium last week in Phoenix. While the picturesque weather may have played a role in bringing snowbirds down to the desert, it's ultimately the top-notch programming to thank for attracting nearly 500 in-person participants, the most ever in the symposium's 25-year history. Even more participants attended via this year's inaugural virtual seminar technology.
    From the expert-laden panel at the pre-conference, to the red carpet premiere of

    Darryl Roberts' "America the Beautiful: Health for Sale," the symposium incorporated core iaedp messages into a divine docket and allowed participants to learn about new strides professionals are taking in their field. Perhaps the pièce de résistance of the weekend was the first annual "Imagine Me Beyond What You See" contest. The winning entry, Erosion, by Rebecca Tishman, was auctioned off to the highest bidder, with all proceeds going toward the iaedp Foundation.

    After such an exciting and educational few days in Arizona, participants and symposium coordinators are already looking forward to next year. Symposium 2012 will be held in Charleston, South Carolina, March 22-25, 2012.
