When Does Disordered Eating Become An Eating Disorder?
The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that 25% of college students have eating disorders. The same percent of college women report managing weight by binging and purging, says the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. Join us for a workshop from the Cambridge Eating Disorder Center, an organization that specializes in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating. The presentation goes over the underlying symptoms of eating disorders, the medical complications, how to talk to a friend/coworker, etc. who think is struggling, treatment methods and prevention on campus.
