February is National Eating Disorder Awareness Month. Eating disorders affect up to 24 million people in America. The mortality rate for individuals with anorexia is 4.0%, 3.9% for bulimia, and 5.3% for other eating disorders.

Please join the Wayne State University President’s Commission on the Status of Women (COSW) and the Inner Door Center® of Royal Oak for an eating disorder awareness program on Wednesday, February 27. The program will feature light yoga practice, discussion about yoga as a treatment for eating disorders, recovery stories from those that Inner Door Center® has successfully treated, and a candlelight vigil to commemorate those who have lost their lives to eating disorders.

The Inner Door Center® is a comprehensive eating disorder treatment center which treats anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating and diabulimia (a condition where individuals with diabetes misuse their medication), and includes founder Beverly Price’s unique Reconnect with Food® Yoga-Based Eating Disorder Treatment Healing System.

Bring a mat and/or towel to practice yoga, along with something to write with/write on. The program, which is sponsored by the WSU President’s Commission on the Status of Women Health Sciences Committee, is free of charge and open to the public.
