About CREDN

Columbia River Eating Disorder Network (CREDN)

We are a non-profit organization composed of treatment professionals dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eating disorders. We promote community awareness of eating, weight and body- image concerns, and provide referral information for those seeking treatment.

Lori Irving started CREDN by inviting interested individuals to join her in an endeavor to better understand eating disorders and to work toward the prevention of eating disorders. She had an interest is bringing professionals, academics, family members and individuals who suffer from eating disorders together, so that everyone had a chance to be heard and to contribute to the field of eating disorder treatment and prevention. She believed in diversity, inclusion and collaboration, and she believed in the power of likeminded individuals working together to promote change. She believed in building bridges rather than walls. Lori’s interest in the field was born, in part, by her struggle with anorexia as a teen. Lori’s passion for her work catalyzed those around her. Lori approached her research, community involvement and teaching responsibilities with her keen intellect and genuine concern and sensitivity for every individual she encountered. Lori’s life was relatively short but her legacy to the CREDN community, and to the community of staff and students at WSU was large and is an ongoing source of inspiration for those who knew her.
