As National Eating Disorders Awareness Week comes to a close, it’s important to understand the true nature of eating disorders. Maybe you had no idea that you can’t always tell by looking that someone is in the throes of an eating disorder, or that for some, innocently beginning a diet can lead to a full-blown eating disorder. They are serious illnesses and not a phase or a lifestyle choice.

When someone has an eating disorder, it is vital to seek help. Because of the complex nature of the illness, a comprehensive treatment team which includes medical, nutritional, and psychological therapies is recommended. The earlier treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery.

We’re in the midst of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW). You may have seen posters up all over campus, emphasizing this year’s theme, “I had no idea.” It is especially fitting for the college environment where so many of your peers had no idea they were heading into trouble when they innocently began a diet or a new exercise regimen to improve their health. Sometimes good intentions turn very wrong. 

If you have friends who are very preoccupied with food, dieting, weight, and body image, and who seem depressed or irritable, and may be having difficulties with class, work and friendships, then they may have an eating disorder.

February 22-28 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the theme this year is “I had no idea.” It is time to dispel some of the common myths about eating disorders and to get the real facts. 

Up to twenty four million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder in the United States. These are serious, potentially life-threatening illnesses, not lifestyle choices. Eating disorders impact not only those who are ill, but also their friends, family, and the whole community.

The course explores the intersections of health and geography. Where we are born and the places we inhabit contribute to our physical and emotional states and determine our overall health status. It is more than a cliché to state that “geography is health destiny.” As part of FLEFF, the course will study this topic through films, videos, readings, and guest speakers. Students will also participate in the FLEFF films and activities
