Our thanks go to Beth Chapman and the design team at Karuna Communications, Leawood, Kansas, and web designer Kirill Miniaev. We think you’ll like the changes.
The new website now offers links to our publisher, the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp), and this means that you can earn continuing education credits through collaboration with iaedp—a link will guide you to the CME programs. If a patient or client is looking for a particular service or a program nearby, they can easily find programs state by state. Now you can go directly to an individual article or read the entire issue. In coming issues we will add an active blog and social media links, to communicate more quickly with readers. You can also access more than 27 years of lead articles, and our newer Spanish editions as well. Future plans include adding a blog and social media links.
With all these changes, however, some things will always stay the same. One is our commitment made with the first print-only issue so long ago—bringing news and practical articles to all professionals treating patients with eating disorders. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
