About The Seed Conference

Dear Team 2017 Seed Participants,

We want to Thank you for visiting our web site to learn more about our Upcoming conference August 18th – 19th. This conference was born 8 years ago, when a group of eating disorder providers where together and started brain-storming of how we can provide clinician’s and treatment providers a cost affordable conference in the Southeast. The goal of this conference is to simply pay for the cost of the conference and to be able to have seed money for the next year. Through the efforts of many, the last 5 years have seen us visit some amazing cities that our founders are from. From Atlanta, Athens, Nashville, Birmingham, New Orleans and this year we turn 7 in our host city of Sandestin. We are encouraging you to bring your families to this beautiful part of the country.

This conference is not even possible without the support of our Sponsors and Exhibitors.

We look forward to seeing you in August and to have you be part of this conference. If you have any questions, please let us know how to help.
