Health and Wellness


National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

February 24 - March 2, 2013

Many college students struggle with the way they look or how they feel about their bodies, with one out of three normal dieters progressing to pathological dieting. By recognizing the symptoms of eating disorders, and getting help, students can end their preoccupation with food and focus their efforts on developing healthy eating and exercise habits.

Students can take a screening online.
