National Eating Disorders Awareness Week and Student Counseling Services

National Eating Disorders Awareness week recently concluded at college campuses throughout the country. Yesterday, counselors from Hofstra’s Student Counseling Services were involved in this important effort providing free and confidential screenings in the Student Center. Students were provided with feedback about healthy eating, eating disorders and body image concerns. 
We appreciated meeting the students who stopped by our table, asked questions and offered some inspiring stories of recovery. Many also demonstrated their Hofstra pride by expressing concern for friends and loved ones and asking important questions about how to encourage others to seek help.


  1. Excellent action to add to Eating disorders Awareness and to provide help for those who don't know what to do.
