WEB: Eating Disorders Awareness Week focuses attention on body image

Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Feb. 3 to 9, is organized internationally by groups concerned about the high prevalence of anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, disordered eating and weight preoccupation.

The local Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Eating Disorders Coalition is hosting its 10th annual Faces of Recovery event. This panel features individuals recovering from eating disorders, as well as family members. This event takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 6, from 7 to 9pm at the Best Western Hotel, 716 Gordon Street, Guelph, Ontario.

A second event, the annual Eating Disorder and Body Image Exposé, will be hosted by the Wellness Centre’s Acceptance Without Limits group. The event, held on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at the University Centre, University of Guelph, runs from 11am to 4pm.

Both events are free of charge, with no pre-registration required. Donations made to the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Eating Disorders Coalition for Faces of Recovery would be welcomed.
