- WHAT: Annual week bringing awareness to the issues surrounding disorder eating and exercise behaviors.
- WHEN: Every spring we spend one week, generally in February and March, in which we sponsor numerous events on campus which provide students with free access to speakers, programs, assistance, performances, and resources regarding eating disorders and their accompanying issues.
- HOW: Eating disorders are often ignored and by bringing in professionals with the right experience and resources we can provide students with knowledge they are lacking.
** Miss Missouri came to speak about her personal experiences with eating disorders and loved
ones, particularly within the pageant world
**Dr. Melanie Katzman came to speak about the effects of eating disorders across cultures
**NIA class: an exercise class encompassing the idea of self-comfort and mind and body connection
**Panel of doctors focusing on bulimia and the effects and presense of exercise bulimia
