Marywood Will Host Eating Disorder Screening Day

Published on Tue, April 02, 2013

On Thursday, April 4, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Marywood will host its Eating Disorder Screening Day at the Psychological Services Center, which is located in the McGowan Center for Graduate and Professional Studies. This event is free and open to the public.

Colleen Siti, a graduate student, says the event was created to give students and local residents the opportunity to get screened for an eating disorder, and she hopes it will evolve into a yearly event.

"This is something that I think is needed on campus and in the community," Ms. Siti said. "We are going to be looking for the three major disorders—anorexia, bulimia and binge eating—and we will give referrals if the person wants one."

All appointments are confidential and no commitment is required.
