Counseling Services will be offering eating disorder screenings at multiple locations around UAB’s campus on Thursday, Feb. 25 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Students, faculty, and staff can complete screenings and talk to UAB health care providers and counselors about issues related to food, eating, body, and weight. The goal of this event is to bring awareness to the eating disorder epidemic on college campuses, and to provide resources to those affected as well as their family and friends. This nationwide event occurs during National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (Feb. 21-27). Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear periwinkle, the color for eating disorder awareness, on Feb. 25.

Screening locations include: Campus Recreation Center, Student Health and Wellness, New Freshman Residence Hall, Hill Student Center, and Commons on the Green (more locations may be added). This event is sponsored by Counseling Services, Health Services, and Employee Assistance and Counseling Center.
