what learners are saying:

I just have to say thank you for making this course available. Thank you for helping me learn more about eating disorders and making me more aware of the importance of how we communicate about food and body image to others. I am a dietetics student and this course made me feel extremely passionate about my future career, in helping people with what ever nutritional challenge they may face. Again, thank you!
As someone who is only just beginning to take on ED clients, this was a super helpful introduction to ED that will provide a good basis for going into further research and training in this area.
This course was incredible, thank you for letting me participate. I took a lot of valuable tools and resources from it and I really appreciate how inclusive this course is. I think it is so important that it addresses oppression and racism which is lacking in traditional dietetic education. 100/10!! This is perfect for any clinician who wants exposure to ED and to gain skills to safely support clients.
