We want to congratulate our nutritionist, Elaina, on just getting her CEDRD, which is the highest possible credentialing for Eating Disorder Treatment! This is no small feat: it takes considerable training, hours of experience and coursework, as well as rigorous exams. Very very few RDs have this credential. Well done!
Here is a paragraph, culled from IAEDP’s website, about the credentialing:
Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) is a credential maintained by the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). This certification aims to establish expertise in the field by requiring dietitians with the CEDRD credential to meet rigorous educational and skill requirements, accumulate a minimum number of hours of qualifying work experience and commit to stay current with all new developments in the field of eating disorders. Completion of this credential provides the certified RD with the skills to address all issues related to food and nutrition, physiology and behavior change associated with eating disorders. A CEDRD is uniquely qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy across the full spectrum of disordered eating and at all levels of eating disorder care.
