The Eating Disorders Information Network (EDIN) is an Atlanta-based non-profit organization dedicated to education, awareness, and early intervention to prevent eating disorders. On the education front, EDIN partners with schools and community organizations in the Greater Atlanta area, collaborating with eating disorder experts to create tailor-made presentations for students in elementary through college, parents, educators and professionals in a variety of fields. EDIN's presentations and resources not only address topics such as early identification and intervention, but the organization also seeks to promote body positivity and often facilitates presentations related to developing a healthy relationship with food and one's body. EDIN has also partnered with Emory's Rollins School of Public Health to develop curriculum for elementary, middle and high school students focusing on the prevention of eating disorders by bolstering protective factors. To promote awareness, EDIN organizes events around the community, including Love Your Body Month, Merrick’s Walk, Scrap Your Scale, and Celebrity Dance Challenge. Finally, EDIN takes steps to promote early intervention by training those who are on the "front lines" such as teachers, coaches and medical professionals to identify the signs and to know how to respond. When individuals do develop distorted body image or disordered eating, EDIN partners with numerous eating disorder organizations to help connect individuals and families to the help that they need. The professionals who partner with EDIN are equipped to help individuals in all walks of life and all areas of Atlanta to fully recover from eating disorders. For more information: www.myedin.org
