Become a Member of the Coalition

The Eating Disorders Coalition (EDC) brings legislative attention to eating disorders as an important public health issue affecting individuals and families across the nation. Membership with the EDC allows your organization to have a stake in informing the community what is important to you and an opportunity to express your organization’s priorities in Congress. Your name on our letterhead is a vote for better research, more comprehensive insurance coverage, and better lives for eating disorders patients.

The EDC is honored to include a broad range of large and small organizations including profit and nonprofit, clinicians, academicians, researchers, and those affected by eating disorders – bringing every kind of stakeholder concern to the table in Washington. An EDC membership isn’t a single vote for change, it is a collective voice that includes everyone your organization serves. For a list of current members, visit our Members page.

We invite your organization to join our coalition for eating disorders advocacy and encourage you to visit our About Us tab that highlights several of our legislative victories.

Hope Circle: $500

Support Circle: $1,000

Advocacy Circle: $2,500

Now more than ever, we hold fast to the claim that the vital enterprise of re- nourishing bodies and minds is (and must be) a ‘together’ sort of affair. We’re all at this table of recovery – family members, patients, clinicians, referring providers, advocates, researchers, teachers, universities, policymakers, thought- leaders, and friends—and at this table, we unleash an unspeakably powerful force to aid those courageous persons doing the profoundly exigent work of recovery. Our commitment—one with another—could very well be the inflection point to save untold lives.”
