Welcome Professionals and Community Members!

The 2017 Houston Eating Disorders Specialists (HEDS) Conference, Freedom in Recovery, brings together professionals, researchers, educators, and members of the community, including those in recovery and their loved ones, to connect and learn from one another in a warm and welcoming environment.

The 2017 HEDS Conference will be held at the Norris Conference Center in CityCentre, February 18, 2017. Sessions led by eating disorder experts will increase your knowledge and skills—as community members or treatment professionals—whether you are a first-time or returning attendee. Sessions are designed to address three levels of conference attendees: community members, early career clinicians, and intermediate/advanced clinicians.

The HEDS Conference offers a unique opportunity for all attendees to develop new connections, learn from the foremost professionals in the field and cultivate new tools for recovery and treatment.
