Free Eating Disorders Screening

 

Tunxis Community College invites the community to National Eating Disorders Screening Day on February 25, 12-1 p.m. and 5-6 p.m. in the Administration Building corridor in observance of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week Feb. 21-27.

The screening offers information on anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge eating disorder for those who are concerned they or a loved one may be struggling with an eating disorder. A counselor will be available for those who wish to take the screening and receive their results. Resources and referral information will also be provided. Nearly 10 million women and one million men in the United States are affected by an eating disorder, according to the National Eating Disorders Association.
