Membership in SMEDA includes both professionals and community members who have been touched by someone with an eating disorder. It could be a daughter, a student, a patient, a client . . . anyone involved in this illness. Professionals include persons providing therapy, nutritional counseling, and/or  medical care, working together as a team to help people with eating disorders.

The Organization
We are a non-profit organization focused on treatment and education surrounding eating disorders. We believe it takes a variety of care providers in multiple settings to help those who suffer from an eating disorder. Our approach is focused on multiple providers communicating together for the benefit of the patient.
