Welcome to my slightly revamped official homepage and blog. My name is Matt Wetsel. I’m a late 20-something, regular old boring guy who happened to have an eating disorder in college. I’m a regular participant in Lobby Day work with the Eating Disorders Coalition, an organization devoted to working on the federal recognition of eating disorders as a public health priority. I’m currently an EDC Junior Board member and also involved in state level advocacy. Outside of my interests in policy work, my main focus is on the intersection of gender constructs as they relate to mental health and especially eating disorders.

February 6-8: 2014 Eating Disorder Recovery Support, Inc. Conference
West coast! I’ll be presenting at the 2014 EDRS conference in San Francisco as well as participating in a panel discussion on diversity within eating disorder populations. The EDRS home page has all the information for registration and lodging. The panel is on Friday 2/7, and my presentation is on Saturday 2/8.
April 2, 2014 Living in Recovery: A Panel Discussion on Eating Disorders
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Women’s Center presents a panel on recovery, co-sponsored by CARE and WAC. The event will focus on what life looks like for those with eating disorder histories now that they are in recovery. Myself, Kitty Westin, and an additional panelist will be lead by Women’s Center Director Geneva Murray, who previously worked with the Eating Disorders Coalition.
I believe this is a local event and it won’t be broadcast online.
