On September 15–17, research assistants Hannah Wolfe and Rebecca Gwira represented the Living F.R.E.E. Lab in a poster presentation at the XXVIII Eating Disorders Research Society (EDRS) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Researchers, including the lab’s Principal Investigator Dr. Rachel Goode, gathered to share and discuss emergent research related to eating disorders. Conference attendees included social workers, psychologists, and medical professionals, among others.
The poster presented research on treatment-related perceptions and experiences of individuals with current or prior eating disorders during the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States. Research assistant Hannah Wolfe described the experience by stating,
Attending the EDRS conference was a truly wonderful experience. I was able to both meet and learn from experts in the field and will take their findings and thought leadership with me as I move forward in my own career. Being able to share the lab’s recent work with other attendees was the cherry on top!
