My Letter to NEDIC


Four years ago, I found myself googling “eating disorders Toronto” and the first link that popped up was the National Eating Disorder Information Centre or as I would come to know it, NEDIC.

I was freshly graduated from teachers college and wanting to build up my work and volunteer experience so I filled in the application form to be an Outreach and Education volunteer.

When I walked through the doors on the 7th floor of Toronto General Hospital for my first interview, I did not realize that my life was about to change forever.

Here at the National Eating Disorder Information Centre, we are not only mandated to share information about eating disorders.. It is also our responsibility to provide information and resources about body image and food and weight preoccupation. That’s why days like tomorrow are so important to us.

May 6th is International No Diet Day. It is a day for organizations and individuals to push back against the industries and messages that encourage us to engage in dangerous dieting behaviours.
