NEDAwareness_2015_FBCover_Diet

National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, hosted by the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), was held during the last week in February and featured a variety of messages with the theme, “I Had No Idea”.

Throughout the week, The NEDA sponsored events across North America to educate people about eating disorders and provide resources to those seeking help. Monuments around the county, including the Empire State Building, were lit up with green and blue to promote awareness.
