National Eating Disorder Awareness Week is wrapping up, but the campaign to tackle eating disorders continues year-round nationally through the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and locally at Murray State University's Women's Center. On Sounds Good, Tracy Ross recaps the week's events with Women's Center director Abigail French and the types of disorders most commonly seen on campus. 


Next week is National Eating Disorders Week, with the theme of "I Had No Idea" for 2015. Many people who are aware of eating disorders may not think they have one, but the campaign seeks to educate people on healthy methods of managing weight along with empowerment activities that help individuals embrace positive qualities in themselves as opposed to an unrealistic ideal. Murray State's Women's Center Director Abigail French discusses events at Murray State University for the awareness week, Tuesday and Wednesday.

This month, the Murray State Women's Center seeks items for their adopted agency, Needline. They're also hosting a Celebrate Women Luncheon in the MSU Women's Center, with door prizes and more. The Director of Murray State's Women's Center Abigail French visits Sounds Good to talk about its learning and volunteering opportunities.
