Welcome from the Conference Chairs

The 16th International London Eating Disorders Conference (LEDC) in March 2023 will be the 30th Anniversary, so we hope you can join us for this celebratory edition!

LEDC has been held every 2 years since 1993 and is widely regarded as one of the leading eating disorders conferences in the world. The conference will be important to attend for all healthcare professionals working in the field including psychiatrists, psychologists, paediatricians, GPs, dietitians, occupational therapists and specialist nurses.

The programme will contain a combination of keynote and plenary lectures, practical clinical workshops, the latest research in the form of short papers and posters, and discussion forums. The Professor Bryan Lask Rising Star in Research Award will recognise the talent, innovation and expertise of promising new researchers in the field, while the Rachel Bryant-Waugh Award for Excellence in Child and Adolescent Mental Health will recognise high quality clinical practice or research.

There will also be plenty of time to network with your colleagues and peers through multiple discussion periods, networking sessions and social functions.

The programme and speakers will be confirmed soon, so stay tuned for updates!

We look forward to welcoming you to London in early Spring 2023.

Kind Regards,

Eric van Furth & Nadia Micali
