Dear colleagues

one quarter of patients suffering from eating disorders are men. Bigorexia, orthorexia, bulimia and anorexia along with compulsive overeating are disorders associated with men as well, who are unfairly neglected, discriminated against women in the treatment of eating disorders. 

With a special sense of pride, honor and privilege, I invite you to become pioneers in helping, promoting and supporting eating disorders in men by participating in 1st International Congress on Eating Disorders in Men, entitled, "Man have it too“. 

The congress will be held in Zagreb, in the Educational Center of the Sveti Ivan Psychiatry Clinic, from October 19 to 22, 2023. 

Psychiatrists, internists, physiatrist, nutritionists, psychologists, psychotherapists, kinesiologists and other interested experts will have the opportunity to learn, talk and work on themselves in a special experiential way while participating in this congress. A special place will be given to young experts. 

I believe you understand how important this topic is for your fathers, brothers, husbands and friends and I invite you to be a part of this idea and the process of creating a unique and rare gathering of multidisciplinary experts. 

On behalf of the small and brave team of organizers, I send you a warm greeting and look forward to meeting you.
