November 12-16th: Loyola University’s first Eating Disorder Awareness
Week

In the United States, 10 million women and 1 million men are affected by
disordered eating. These types of unhealthy behaviors are even more
prevalent among college students, and can lead to myriad physical and
psychological problems.

In response, the University Counseling Center, Co-Curricular Programming
and Residential Life will be working together to promote some exciting
and informative events!

“Be Comfortable in Your Own Genes Day!”

We’ll be collecting jeans in the residence halls throughout the week.
Students can donate jeans that are too big or too small. This is a great
way to give back to the community, while examining your own beliefs
about body image and healthy habits.

11/15/12, 7p.m. in the Audubon Room

Jesse Hartley, Executive Director of the Children’s Advocacy Center,
will speak about her experience with an eating disorder. If you have
ever been curious about someone’s individual experience or wanted to
know more about how eating disorders make their impact, please join us.
Discussion and free dinner included!

Also, watch for our Tabling throughout the week in the Danna Center with
information about eating disorders, healthy habits, and how to approach
a friend of concern.
