Who is OEDA?
In 2008 three eating disorder professionals, Jaime Conover, LPC, Lisa Gibson, MS, RD/LD, and Ovidio Bermudez, MD, had the vision to provide educational opportunities for professionals to raise the standard of care for those suffering from eating disorders. They additionally saw a need for sufferers and their families to have a central location to find eating disorder-related resources and access to providers. As a result, the Oklahoma Eating Disorders Association was created.
Over the years OEDA’s mission and vision have continued to attract volunteers and donors that have allowed for the creation of ongoing educational programs for teens, young adults, and professionals.
We believe all humans can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Oklahoma Eating Disorders Association (OEDA), a not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to the prevention of disordered eating, eating disorders, and negative body image by raising awareness, providing education, and serving as the leading resource of support and identification of treatment resources throughout Oklahoma and neighboring states.
