This prototype website aims to break the cycle of stereotyping imagery used by other platforms attempting to educate people about eating disorders but that perpetuate unhelpful stigmas. Instead, EDedu does not use body imagery or imagery related to what is commonly associated with eating disorders (scales, tape measures, mirror reflections, white women, etc.) and lets the user find validation and power through people’s experiences, clear text, and neutral shapesthat speak to the real, complex, and diverse nature of eating disorders.
