|Eating Disorder Awareness Week is Feb. 26-March 2|
Eating Disorder Awareness Week is Feb. 26–March 2. The theme this year is “Be Comfortable in Your Genes: Wear jeans that fit the real you.”
Be comfortable in your genes.
Your genes play a role in determining your body size and shape.
So be kind to your body.
Stop trying to turn it into something it’s not.
Wear jeans that fit the REAL you.
Jeans Drive: Take that first step to being comfortable now. “Back of the closet” jeans can be dropped off at the Wellness Center, Student Health Services, University Counseling Center, and Student Health Promotion Office all week long. All jeans collected in the drive will be donated to Arc.
Fearless Friday: Enjoy a sweet indulgence on Fearless Friday. Feel how empowering a diet-free day of self-acceptance can be! Join us for fruit and chocolate fondue on Friday, March 2, at the Memorial Union from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Contact the Student Health Promotions Office, Student Health Services, or University Counseling Center to pick up a free packet of information on eating disorders, including signs and symptoms, personal self-assessment, how to help a friend or family member, and campus resources. Just stop by any of the offices or contact the Student Health Promotions Office via phone at 777-2097 or email us at email@example.com to get your free packet.
Eating disorders are illnesses, not choices. There is help available. To take a self assessment, go to http://www.ucc.und.edu or call the Counseling Center at 777-2127 to make an appointment to talk to someone.
This event is sponsored by: University Counseling Center, Student Health Services, the Wellness Center, the Women’s Center, ADAPT, and the National Eating Disorder Association.
