Programs & Resources
With the right information, tools and recommended actions, we can teach our students (teachers and friends!) how to speak up, stand up and save a life. We have a list of resources that is constantly being updated to help with handling the things we talk about at our conference. Please utilize and share these resources—they exist to help!

Hospitalizations for eating disorders in children under the age of 12 years old increased by 119 percent between the years of 1999 and 2006. We are aiming to decrease this number with your help.
