National Eating Disorders Awareness Week Feb 23-Mar 1, 2015

This year National Eating Disorders Awareness Week is being held from February 23rd to March 1st.

(#NEDAwareness Week)

Eating Disorder

It is a week to spread awareness of the “seriousness of eating disorders and to improve public understanding of their causes, triggers and treatments. By increasing awareness and access to resources, we can encourage early detection and intervention, which can improve the likelihood of full recovery for millions.”  (

This years theme is: I Had No Idea. It stresses how important it is to intervene early and recognize the wide range of people affected by eating disorders. Many significant early signs are overlooked, ” I Had No Idea”. For each day of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, they target a different audience and share specific education, resources, information, and provide help. A key goal of #NEDAwareness Week is to direct individuals to a free online screening for eating disorders at

NEDA has information and resources available via their website and helpline: NEDA Helpline: 1 (800) 931-2237

National Condom Day – February 14th

National Condom Day is celebrated each year to remind us that it is an easy way to watch your health! National Condom Day originated from an AIDS support group during the late 1980’s.

A condom is a cheap, easily found form of contraception that protects not only against pregnancy, but also against many sexually transmitted diseases like AIDS. National Condom Day is used to emphasize the importance of educating young adults about the risks of unprotected sex.
