2022 Eating Disorders in Sport Learning Series

The Victory Program at McCallum Place is excited to announce our new Learning Series.  We fully believe in the importance of sharing education, insight, and best practices surrounding eating disorder treatment within the athlete population, and have decided to pivot from an annual conference to an online webinar series.  We are hopeful that this format will help us reach more clinicians, coaches, healthcare providers, and sport personnel who interface with athletes on a regular basis.

We will be hosting an Eating Disorder in Sport Learning Series presented by members of our Victory Program treatment team, including our sport psychologist, strength and conditioning coach, sport dietitian, and physical therapy consultant.  Each of our half day virtual events will include the following four presentations:

  • Dedicated Athlete or Disordered Eating?  The Importance of Eating Disorder Awareness Among Athletes, presented by Savannah Fernandez, PsyD.
  • Fueling a Balanced Relationship with Food: Nutritional Considerations for Athletes with Eating Disorders, presented byTaylor Larson, RD, CSSD, LD, CEDRD
  • Empowering Athletic Staff: Strengthening Confidence in the Support of Athletes with Eating Disorders, presented by Amanda Tierney, MS, CSCS, CEDS
  • Rehabilitation and Return to Sport: Physical Therapy Support for Athletes with Eating Disorders, presented byMichelle Laging PT, DPT, CPPC, CEDS-S
