The 31st Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals:
Perspectives on Feminism, Eating Disorders and Beyond

Held Virtually • Beginning Friday, November 12, 2021

Since 1991, the Conference has been dedicated to providing eating disorders education and training for professionals in which to discover, debate and share the best of what we bring to our profession.

This year, in particular, we recognize the importance of connecting as a community to build and reinforce our shared values, resiliency and hope for the future. Through clinical practice, research and thoughtful reflection on issues of social justice and the needs of diverse populations, we will look back on the impact of this past year as we explore treatment, cultural and familial influences, prevention, recovery, trauma and so much more.

Registration for our 2021 VIRTUAL Conference will open in mid-June.

Gabourey, also known to her fans as "Gabby," made her film debut as the title character in Lee Daniels' Academy Award-nominated film, Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire.

Gabby charms audiences with her self-deprecating tales of growing up with a polygamous father and a subway-performing mother in New York City, her first job as a phone sex operator and her atypical rise to stardom. She nimbly weaves her self-aware, witty takes on friendship, depression, celebrity, fashion, race, and weight into her story, delighting listeners while consistently challenging their pre-conceived notions of what it means to truly embrace yourself. She encourages everyone to be proud of what makes you different—and use that difference to make dreams come true.
