11th Annual HEAL Conference is March 2

T.H.E. Center for Disordered Eating is hosting the 11th annual HEAL Conference on Friday, March 2, from 8:45 a.m.-4: 45 p.m. at Ambrose West, 312 Haywood Road in Asheville.

The HEAL Conference provides education on disordered eating and its treatment to professionals and to the general public. Experts will present on cutting-edge approaches to finding a healthy balance between food, exercise, and body image.   
“We decided to time our conference this year to align with #NEDAwareness Week so that we may point even more people to the support available here in Asheville,” said Simone Seitz, Executive Director of T.H.E. Center for Disordered Eating. This year’s NEDAwareness Week theme, “Let’s Get Real,” provides opportunities for people across the nation to engage in conversation about our complicated relationships with nourishment, movement, appearance, and health. National Eating Disorders Awareness is Monday, Feb. 26 – Sunday, March 4, and T.H.E. Center for Disordered Eating is hosting a full week of events in WNC, including the 2018 HEAL conference.
