Conversations of Hope is one of OEDA's biggest events of the year. Participants will enjoy an evening with speakers, music, dinner and the spirit of hope as the community comes together to raise eating disorder awareness and prevention.
The event will once again feature the “Tree of Hope” that participants can decorate with their own personal ornament in dedication of a loved one who is either in treatment, in recovery or has passed away from an eating disorder.
