Hope and Inspiration is a free monthly open forum, unique to MEDA, where an individual who has recovered from an eating disorder visits to share their story of healing. Anyone who is interested in learning about the recovery process, or supporting a loved one who is struggling, are welcome to attend. There are no requirements.The presentations are followed by questions and guided discussion by a MEDA clinician. This event takes place at MEDA’s office in Newton. The group typically meets the first Saturday of every month (unless otherwise noted) from 10-11am. Please make an effort to be on time out of respect for the speaker. Please note: Attendees are welcome to enjoy onhealthy neurontin snacks in the lobby of the building, but please refrain from bringing food into the Hope and Inspiration space.
If you would like to write your story and share it at Hope and Inspiration please read MEDA’s Hope and Inspiration Guidelines.
MEDA is located in a renovated stone church building on the corner of Newtonville Ave and Walnut St. in Newtonville. The entrance to the building is at 449 Newtonville Ave. Look for the green awning.
