Community education and continuing education
There are lots of ways to fight eating
disorders. One way is to educate yourself about them, their causes,
symptoms, and treatments. Each year there are national and international
conferences and awareness programs, some of which include screening
efforts. The following opportunities — some for professionals,
some for the general public — are currently available to help
people learn more effective ways of dealing with disordered eating.
