WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (The Exponent) – A Purdue alumna shared her journey through battling anorexia nervosa this past Monday to a group of students.
National Eating Disorder Awareness Week began Monday with an event hosted at the France A. Cordova Recreational Sports Center with the documentary film called, “Someday Melissa,” about a girl battling an eating disorder. A panel of women who recovered shared their testimonies afterward, touching the people who showed up to the event.
Sue Eiler, a staff therapist at the Counseling and Psychological Services said, “It is hard for people to come to these things … There were some people clearly emotional about the film.”
