We are so thankful for our community partners FEDUP and The National Alliance for Eating Disorders and the work they do on behalf of all LGBTQ+ people. This event is in partnership with them to raise awareness and to provide much needed financial support for FEDUP’s Dietary Match Program.
This event is free but please consider contributing a suggested donation of $10 to help this program support the many individuals who experience barriers to the lifesaving care they need.

Dietary Match Program:
Since 2020, FEDUP has facilitated a program where we match transgender and intersex individuals who have eating disorders with eating disorder dietitians for reduced or no cost service. We do this by finding trans+ affirming providers, meeting with them to ensure they are a fit for the program, and providing training when needed. Our sliding scale we operate on with dietitians is 0-25$ paid by participants.

This training will review key considerations for how dietitians can provide affirming and appropriate care to transgender, nonbinary, and intersex individuals with eating disorders. While many are now aware that transgender and nonbinary people experience increased rates of eating disorders compared to the general population, there is a deficit of trans-informed eating disorder care professionals. And as with many intersex health concerns, there is a paucity of research on intersex people with eating disorders and an even greater lack of providers who can account for and adequately support their needs. This presentation will address the role of the dietitian in gender affirming clinical care and how dietitians can communicate and collaborate with the multidisciplinary care team to ensure their clients receive unbiased, affirming care.
We look forward to connecting with you for a morning of conversation and education. If you have questions about this event, or need more information, please reach out to Eric Dorsa at Eric.Dorsa@ERCPathlight.com.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to…
Describe causes of eating disorders in trans & intersex communities and how they can function as coping mechanisms
Discuss barriers to ED care for trans & intersex individuals and how their needs are not met by existing care structures
Identify strategies to create a safe and affirming practice for trans & intersex folx
