Thank you to our generous sponsors! Your support of AKEDA's mission provides help and inspires hope to those affected by eating disorders.
Eating Recovery Center
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Eating Recovery Center is an international center for eating disorders and mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorders recovery providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, and PTSD.
Digital CBTe is a new self-help program for adults with recurrent binge eating. It is an 8-week online program designed to reach people directly through their mobile devices and computers, without direct clinician interaction. It was created by a world-leading research group in the treatment of eating disorders at the University of Oxford, UK. Pilot research studies suggest that most people who complete Digital CBTe see a substantial reduction in their binge eating. The Digital CBTe team looks forward to offering the program to Alaskans very soon!
Thanks to a generous contribution from ConocoPhillips, AKEDA will return in 2024 with a new eating disorder Project ECHO series. Project ECHO allows multi-disciplinary providers throughout Alaska (and the world) to engage in learning best practices for eating disorder screening, treatment, and referral. We’re grateful to ConocoPhillips for investing in this valuable program that is a foundational way we are helping to grow Alaska’s capacity to support individuals with eating disorders.

With support from GCI's Suicide Prevention Grant, AKEDA partnered with BBAHC to co-create an eating disorders curriculum for tribal health care providers in the Dillingham region. Multiple virtual short trainings will be provided, cumulating in a full-day on-site training in Dillingham this Spring. Those with eating disorders experience a 35x greater risk for suicide – eating disorder care is suicide prevention.
