EATING DISORDER AWARENESS ON CAPITOL HILL
I was recently approached by the Alumni Coordinator at Rosewood Center for Eating Disorders (where I was treated for my eating disorder) to travel to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to partake in “Hill Day” with the Eating Disorders Coalition. Just last week, I spoke to congress and senate representatives that represent the state of Arizona & I shared my story to help eating disorders be detected early + lobby for a Congressionally recognized Eating Disorder Awareness week. My hope is to help others detect they have a problem with food, exercise + mental illness before their life is in danger. Looking forward to writing a blog post on this experience to share what it was like making an impact at this level!
