Title:
Impacts of Weight Stigma on the Treatment of Amenorrhea

Bio:
Dr. Nicola Rinaldi has a PhD in biology from MIT. Since experiencing hypothalamic amenorrhea (missing periods) herself, Dr. Rinaldi has been on a mission to spread awareness of the condition and how to recover. In 2016 she published the book "No Period. Now What?" This book is a comprehensive resource that includes much of the medical and scientific research that underlies our current understanding of the triggers for amenorrhea, what steps to take for recovery, and treatments to use for recovery and pregnancy as needed. In addition, Dr. Rinaldi performed the largest survey to date of women who likewise experienced amenorrhea, and includes results from the survey answering many of the common questions women have, such as "How long will it take to recover?" "Will I be able to get pregnant?" and "Will I resume cycling after pregnancy?". Finally, the book includes Dr. Rinaldi's own story along with those of hundreds of other women, providing hope and reassurance to women following in their footsteps. Since publishing "No Period. Now What?" Dr. Rinaldi has been a guest on multiple podcasts, attended the ACSM and SCAN conferences, and presented the winning poster at the 2017 Female Athlete Conference.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT SYMPOSIUM 2017

I learned so much from the EDRDpro symposium! I am both a nutritionist and a mental health counselor, and I can honestly say I have been using the material presented on a weekly basis in my practice. I also so appreciated how easy it was to access all the presentations, and the ease of accessing it all on my own time. I would strongly recommend these symposiums and courses for ALL nutritionists, not just those who practice as specialists in eating disorders. Thank you!!!” ~  Grace. L , 2017

The EDRDpro Symposium had an amazing line-up of presenters addressing a broad spectrum of educational topics surrounding eating disorders. As a fitness professional and coach, I found the topics of each session and the closed Facebook group discussions with the expert presenters to be an invaluable opportunity to learn from the leaders in the field. There was so much information to take in from the video presentations, to the handouts and supplemental material provided with each session. It was a great opportunity to learn how to be a responsible advocate for eating disorder awareness and prevention, especially in the athletic and Crossfit communities where disordered eating habits are commonly promoted as “healthy”. This was a great forum for asking questions and interacting with the proponents of a non-diet, Health at Every Size approach. Sumner organized a fantastic engaging group of experienced professionals, and I will definitely look forward to participating again in the future, even though I am not an RD!” — Kortney K

“EDRDpro was a FANTASTIC event, filled with invaluable information from a variety of experts in the field of Eating Disorders. As a Registered Dietitian who would like to work in the Eating Disorder field someday, I found the event extremely informative, engaging and thought-provoking. I think my favorite part, however, is that participants are granted access to the videos long after the event has ended. This allowed me to watch the videos on my own time, as well as rewatch the ones that I felt like I needed to watch again. Such an awesome event! “ – Anna C. July, 2017
