ICED Mentorship Program
Facilitating mentoring relationships for members, at the annual International Conference on Eating Disorders (ICED), AED pairs interested AED members with more seasoned AED members (based on interests) at a “meet and greet” type social event. The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for members to receive short-term (and potentially lasting) mentorship from experienced AED leaders. Mentors may also benefit from interaction with up-and-coming professionals by networking and facilitating optimal training and retention of promising professionals who will be the future of the AED. Sign up to become a mentor or mentee during the general ICED registration process.
