About the Training

This virtual 1 CE presentation will discuss some of the key nutrition barriers that college students face on a daily basis. We will explore the prevalence of eating disorders on campuses and how these nutrition barriers are risk factors that impact eating disorders and recovery. Attendees will leave with skills to support college students in getting adequate nutrition, aid in the prevention of eating disorders on campuses, and provide tools to assess the need for eating disorder treatment for college students.
