US Chapters & International Chapter

Connect Locally. Reach Globally.

Your local hub for professional growth, networking,
and the collective pursuit of eating disorder treatment.

Chapters are the lifeblood of iaedp™. They represent the frontline of our mission, bringing our global objectives to local communities. As crucial extensions of our overarching organization, chapters play an integral role in amplifying our impact, fostering professional development, and enhancing member experience at a regional level.


We are proud of our International Chapter and its efforts toward representing countries around the world. We have International Chapter Chairs in Argentina, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Ireland, Kenya, and Mexico.
