Eating Recovery Center Foundation
The Eating Recovery Center Foundation (ERCF) was established in 2012 as a 501(c)(3) organization with a three-fold purpose: (1) to provide professionals in the eating disorders field with education and development programs that increase their knowledge and clinical treatment skills; (2) to support research initiatives that deepen understanding of eating disorders and how they can be best treated; and (3) to create a scholarship fund for patients in treatment at Eating Recovery Center who are in need of financial assistance to complete a course of treatment.
It is essential that clinicians working with a high-risk eating disordered population be aware of recent research to plan appropriate and effective courses of intervention. To this end, Eating Recovery Center has developed several programs designed to educate eating disorders professionals on new developments in the field and provide training in best practices:
- Eating Recovery Center Foundation Eating Disorders Conference: Now in its fifth year, this two-day event on August 23rd and 24th will explore the trends, research and emerging best practices shaping the field and offers an invaluable opportunity to learn from and connect with the leaders that develop standards of excellence and drive innovation in the treatment of eating disorders.

- On Demand Professional Development Series: This professional educational opportunity offers bi-monthly video presentations delivered by Eating Recovery Center’s clinical leadership in an On Demand format to accommodate the schedules of professionals in the field. Topics in the series include innovative treatment modalities, emerging research and practical implications of clinical findings for the eating disorders treatment practitioner. Complimentary educational videos from leading eating disorders experts are available for download through Eating Recovery Center’s professional eNewsletter.
