Body Image and Eating Disorder Awareness (BIEDA)

Special Interest


The purpose and goal of BIEDA is to encourage a positive, sustainable lifestyle through body image and eating disorder awareness and campus/local resource identification. This organization will be responsible for carrying out an annual week of awareness activities in conjunction with the National Eating Disorder Awareness week. This organization is directly affiliated with the Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa (EDCI). We will provide programming throughout the year and an annual week of events during National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. We will work to include events that appeal to all groups of people because eating disorders can affect everyone. We want to be a voice that will de-stigmatize eating disorders and to help those that are struggling to identify how to receive help.
