NEDAwareness Week Feb 20-26
In light of the upcoming National Eating Disorder Awareness week February 20th through the 26th the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) is starting early on raising awareness. This annual event is in its 24th year!
How You can Help Raise Awareness
“NEDAwareness Week 2011 is already generating interest nationwide, with volunteers coordinating events throughout the country using their local media to spread the word about eating disorders. During this week, hundreds of events will be held in communities coast to coast, offering an opportunity for people to gather information and learn how to support those with eating disorders. Opportunities are still available to distribute materials, purchase kits or to register to “do just one thing” to support this national movement.
Ways in which you can help raise awareness make posters and hang them in your schools, libraries, any community place that will allow you to hang them. Make handouts educating people about eating disorders and hand them out at school the shopping mall any public place where children, teens and parents might be. Anything you do may make a difference even if it is in just one life! Put your best foot forward and make an effort to help the thousands of people who suffer from eating disorders.
