Eating Disorder Awareness Panel Discussion

Eating Disorder Awareness Panel Discussion

Tue 10 December 2019 18:00-20:00

Tr.07, Old College

 

What is your relationship with food? Do you criticize yourself for eating either too much or too little? Are your eating habits misunderstood or stigmatized? Eating disorders are multifaceted illnesses that involve more than food intake or body weight—they are a kaleidoscope of cultural perceptions, differing ideas of ‘healthy’, and problematic food- or body-based social attitudes and language. Eating disorders affect both cognition and behaviour, and silently affect many people around us. Please join us for an informal roundtable discussion led by UoE postgrad students who have both direct and indirect experience with disordered eating behaviours. As it comes close to the holidays, either with or away from personal support systems, food is ever-present. Please join us before holiday travels to participate in an important discussion about our relationships with food. Even if you don’t identify with having a particular eating issue, please feel free to simply come and listen!
