General Attendee registrations include all of the conference programming and events noted above, for one attendee.

Family Package registrations are designed to make the NEDA Conference a valuable learning opportunity for those affected, as well as their support system. We understand that it is critical for everyone involved in supporting a loved one through an eating disorder to have accurate information and the opportunity to connect with others who have been through similar experiences. The primary registrant for each group will be charged the current conference registration rate, and they can then add up to five family members at a discounted rate.

Volunteer registration rates are discounted in order to acknowledge the indispensable assistance of NEDA’s conference volunteers. NEDA accepts a limited number of volunteers to assist with various onsite tasks. Please visit our volunteer page for more information.

Student registrations are discounted in order to foster learning and networking opportunities for students considering careers as eating disorder treatment professionals and researchers. Students may use the code STUDENT2015 for a $30 registration discount. A valid student ID is required upon check-in. Please note that this discount is only applicable to General Attendee and Family Package registrations and only one discount code is accepted per registrant.

Please visit our Scholarships page for information on NEDA conference scholarships.


The primary booth staff’s registration fee is included in the price of your exhibit booth. You may register one additional exhibit booth staff for $385. All additional registrants will be charged the current general attendee rate. Visit our Exhibitors & Sponsors page for exhibitor registration instructions and details.

“Loved this dinner. Came to the conference alone and ended up with a table of friends who I am still keeping in contact with. This dinner was a great kick-off to the conference.”

The Body Project Facilitator Training
Thursday, October 1st, 9am-4:30pm
Free for registered attendees!

The Body Project is an eating disorder prevention and early intervention program backed by two decades of research and evaluation data. The Body Project gives high school and college-aged girls the tools and skills to confront unrealistic beauty ideals and engages them in the development of healthy body image.

NEDA invites registered conference attendees (ages 18+) to sign up for a free one-day Body Project training. Please note that this training is designed for educators, and they will be given first preference for the limited number of slots.

At the completion of the trainings attendees will be qualified to facilitate The Body Project in their communities. Please note that this training will qualify you to facilitate sessions of the Body Project and will not qualify you to train others in how to facilitate the Body Project. To sign up please email  by August 15th.
