Academy for Eating Disorders

The Academy for Eating Disorders (AED) began in 1993 with a meeting organized by Craig Johnson, Ph.D. in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. Thirty-three clinicians and researchers met to discuss concerns about the deleterious effect of managed care and other insurance practices on providing quality treatment for patients with eating disorders.

This group saw a need for an organization of eating disorders professionals that embodied excellence in education, treatment and research that could advocate for patients with eating disorders, provide professional training and development and, in general, represent the field of eating disorders. The AED was formed to meet these goals, and today, the AED includes over 1,000 eating disorders professionals from around the world who have joined together to support this mission.

Mission:
The Academy for Eating Disorders is a global professional association committed to leadership in eating disorders research, education, treatment, and prevention.
The Academy's objectives are to:

  • Promote the effective treatment and care of patients with eating disorders and associated disorders
  • Develop and advance initiatives for the prevention of eating disorders
  • Disseminate knowledge regarding eating disorders to members of the Academy, other professionals and the general public
  • Stimulate and support research in the field
  • Promote multidisciplinary expertise within the Academy's membership
