HEALTHY BODIES, HEALTHY MINDS is a full-day wellness summit for educators and professionals across North Texas. Since 2015, Region 10, The Elisa Project and Elisa’s Disordered Eating Coalition (“EDEC”) have teamed-up to bring together top presenters to discuss eating disorders and mental health, body image, and thinking for today’s children and teens.
Check back for updates on the third annual Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds wellness summit.
Designed to help professionals prevent, recognize, diagnose and treat eating disorders, the Symposium is planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through joint sponsorship by the UT Southwestern Medical Center and The Elisa Project. One of the country’s leading academic medical centers, patient-care providers, and research institutions, the UT Southwestern Medical Center is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. For more information, please refer to previous Symposia brochures or contact us.
Because eating disorders can be difficult to recognize and diagnose, The Elisa Project has created toolkits for healthcare professionals, teachers, and coaches. Each toolkit was created by specialists in the field to give individuals in these important roles the tools they need when faced with a student struggling with an eating disorder.
