Contributed on behalf of Cathy J. Saloff-Coste, MS, RD, CDN, registered dietician and nutrition consultant at Hammond Health Center.

February 21-27 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the focus this year is on early detection and intervention. The earlier an eating disorder is recognized and treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery. 

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder, and up to 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. Eating disorders are complex 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.

Windows 10 was released last summer, and Microsoft is anxious to have its newest operating system become widely adopted. To that end, Windows 7 users may find that they are being prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 when visiting various websites. Users of College Windows computers should NOT accept the installation prompt for Windows 10 from websites or any other mechanisms.

At this time, DIIS is conducting testing and research to verify that software and systems commonly used at Ithaca College are compatible with the new operating system, as well as working to develop a formal plan for upgrading College computers.
