Eating Disorders affect people of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, socioeconomic class, abilities, races, and ethnic backgrounds. That is why, from February 1st to 7th every year, Eating Disorder groups across Canada unite to commemorate Eating Disorder Awareness Week (EDAW) with a national week of action focused on educating the public about Eating Disorders.

Join staff from the Student Health & Wellness outside the Main Cafeteria February 2nd between 1:30pm and 3:30pm to escalate awareness of the impact of Eating Disorders, the dangerous stereotypes and myths, and the supports available for people living with or affected by them.

It can often be a challenge to take a minute to ourselves, so why not make self-care a habit and Take10.
