According to historical research, it has been thought that eating disorders were a white upper class phenomenon. But recent studies have shown that Spanish speaking clients have eating disorders and body image concerns at rates comparable to or greater than non-Spanish speaking whites.

According to historical research, it has been thought that eating disorders were a white upper class phenomenon. But recent studies have shown that Spanish speaking clients have eating disorders and body image concerns at rates comparable to or greater than non-Spanish speaking whites.

To address this issue directly among eating disorder professionals, the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp.com), has released the 2018 program line-up for its 32nd annual Symposium, featuring seven sessions in Spanish only that addresses the latest in eating disorder treatment, causes and science. The 2018 iaedp™ Symposium will take place over a four-day period, March 22 - 25 at the Omni at ChampionsGate in Orlando, Florida and will feature over 60 presentations and workshops.    

“Many of our international members prefer the Spanish presentations, and other members are bilingual to better serve some of their patients,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director of the iaedp™ Foundation. “Previous years’ Spanish-only presentations at the Symposium have been very popular. Our active International Chapter led by Dr. Juana Maria Poulisis of Argentina with Central America Chair Dra. Rosanna Mauro de Maya, MS, CEDRD, have provided a much needed boost and focus on training and engagement to Spanish speaking countries around the globe.
