PEKIN, Ill., Dec. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cultural competency and understanding of different cultural perspectives is a special focus for eating disorders treatment professionals who care for diverse patients. To support this effort, the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp.com) will offer six Spanish-only sessions that address the latest in eating disorders treatment, causes and science at its 2020 iaedp™ Symposium.

The annual conference will take place March 26-29 at the Omni at ChampionsGate where nearly 100 presentations and workshops will address a variety of topics concerning eating disorders treatment.

"Many of our international members prefer the Spanish presentations, and other members are bilingual to better serve their Hispanic patients," said Blanche A. Williams, Director of International Development at the iaedp™ Foundation.
