MISSION

We are a web-based community of Registered Dietitians (RDs) and other like-minded professionals who work from a non-diet, Health at Every Size® approach. In addition to dietitians, we are happy to welcome students, interns, counselors, coaches, and all medical professionals. Our mission is to support and train dietetics professionals on evidence-based, HAES research and emerging science to help broaden their skills in identifying, treating, and preventing disordered eating and eating disorders.

The EDRDPro annual symposium and ongoing membership program are all about the clients who need our help: The soul of EDRDpro lies at our commitment to help professionals be prepared and equipped with the training, information and support to help liberate and free people everywhere from diet culture and disordered eating. We are soldiers against dieting, body shaming, weight discrimination and fat phobia.

EDRDpro was created in 2017 by founder Sumner Brooks, MPH, RDN, LD, CEDRD
