WithAll (formerly The Emily Program Foundation) announced its name change today, marking its new focus on prioritizing eating disorder prevention, expanding recovery support, and offering simple resources that will reach many more people. This name change represents the organization’s expansion of its reach and scope after a successful decade-plus journey through the invaluable contributions of its founders and supporters then, now, and into the future.
The name Withall signifies that no one is alone in fighting an eating disorder—or in working to prevent them. While the name has changed, The Emily Program remains one of WithAll’s valuable partners and supporters.
On the first episode of Peace Meal, host Claire Holtz talks to the founder of The Emily Program, Dirk Miller. Dirk shares how his recovery from alcoholism and bulimia set him on a mission to help others who are struggling.
About the podcast:
