The 31st Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals: Perspectives on Feminism, Eating Disorders and Beyond beginning November 12, 2021. Since 1991, the Conference has provided eating disorders education and training for professionals in which to discover, debate and share the best of what we bring to our profession. This year, we recognize the importance of connecting as a community to build and reinforce our shared values, resiliency and hope for the future. Join us as we look back on the impact of this past year and explore treatment, cultural and familial influences, prevention, recovery, trauma and so much more. Featured Keynote- Gabourey Sidibe, Award-Winning Actress & Author. Gabourey made her film debut as the title character in Lee Daniels’ Academy Award-nominated film, Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire. Gabby nimbly weaves her self-aware, witty takes on friendship, depression, celebrity, fashion, race, and weight into her presentation, delighting listeners while consistently challenging their pre-conceived notions of what it means to truly embrace yourself. She encourages everyone to be proud of what makes you different—and use that difference to make dreams come true. For questions, visit www.renfrewcenter.com or contact conference@renfrewcenter.com.
