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 recovery. 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 a 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 snacks in the lobby of the building, but please refrain from bringing food into the Hope and Inspiration space.

Upcoming Dates: September 8th, October 13th, November 3rd

*Please note that the September Hope & Inspiration will be held the 2nd Saturday of September due to the Labor Day holiday.

*Please note that the October Hope & Inspiration will be held the 2nd Saturday of October due to the Columbus Day holiday.
