Habitat’s Women Build program invites all females to learn and practice construction skills in a welcoming, friendly, positive environment.  Training sessions are hands-on and last approximately one hour, enough time to test the tools and ask lots of questions without taking up your entire evening.  Girls ages 14 and up are also welcome to join in!  Habitat for Humanity hopes participants will put their skills to good use by volunteering on a Habitat job site, making a difference by helping them construct decent, affordable homes right here in our community.

Submitted on behalf of Cathy J. Saloff-Coste, MS, RD, CDN, Ithaca College Registered Dietician Nutritionist

February 26 - March 4 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the focus this year is on getting screened. The earlier an eating disorder is recognized and treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery. For some, getting screened is their first step toward a life free of an eating disorder.

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder, and 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. Eating disorders are complex potentially life-threatening bio-psycho-social illnesses, not lifestyle choices. They profoundly impact not only those who are ill, but also their friends, family, and the whole community.
