SMEDA welcomes local volunteer involvement including from area students. We have a number of committees that would welcome your involvement including Fundraising, Community Outreach/Education, Social Media, Membership and Professional Development. If you have an idea for a special project you would like to undertake, we would love to hear from you. Contact us.


SMEDA needs your financial support to increase awareness and prevention, train professionals and work to improve treatment options for people suffering from eating disorders. Any amount given can make a difference in a person's life.

We also welcome the opportunity to partner with local organizations and businesses interested in supporting this mission. Please contact us for more information about sponsorship opportunities.


Get involved and make your voice be heard on this issue. We need your active participation in these upcoming events and programs.


SMEDA membership is open to anyone who has an interest in education to prevent eating disorders. This includes community members whose lives have been touched by an eating disorder, students in various courses of study, and professionals who are interested in treating patients with eating disorders.
