We hope the first few weeks back at school have been treating you well and you are off to a fantastic start! Are you wondering what events and activities are coming this semester? Here is a look into Eating Disorders Awareness Week:
- Eating disorders affect not only physical health, but all facets of health such as emotional health, mental health, spiritual health, and social well-being
- The diagnosed rate of eating disorders has been increasing since 1950
- Those with an eating disorder have a much higher risk for developing obsessive-compulsive disorder
- For many reasons, many cases are not likely to be reported
If you would like to speak with someone about your health and one-on-one nutrition consultation, please contact the HERC (217-581-7786).
