Eating Disorders Awareness Week: IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE.

Date Posted: Saturday, February 25, 2023

For the 3rd year in a row, we are proud to be a National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) Awareness Week (Feb 27-March 5) collaborator, and help NEDA in their goal to shine the spotlight on eating disorders by educating the public, spreading a message of hope, and putting lifesaving resources into the hands of those in need.

This year's theme is "IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE", which celebrates Strength through Experience and Knowledge by recognizing that It's Time for Change. #EDAW2023 is an opportunity to center on lived experience and eating disorder education, which are essential catalysts for awareness and change. -
