Presentation: Understanding Eating Disorders

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

On Friday, March 4, in room W105, the NCC Crisis Response Team will host a professional development presentation on understanding and helping students who may have an eating disorder. The Renfrew Center’s Lisa Colvin will deliver the presentation.

Anorexia, bulimia and compulsive overeating are problems often seen on college campuses. They are serious and often life-threatening illnesses which at the very least impede learning in and out of the classroom. Early identification and intervention are key factors in the successful treatment of eating disorders and since professors are the first line of defense in our institutions, staff education on this topic is quite important.

Light refreshments will be served. Please sign up using Google doc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bMq7IrSK-a0ALaTZiUWoHpmDdKqqrqVPgr88t-xm92g/edit?usp=sharing.

For more information, please contact Kelly Delmazio at kdelmazio@norwalk.edu or Cathy Miller at cmiller@norwalk.edu.
