Lewis and Clark hosted an Eating Disorder Screening on February 20 and 21. The process was simple and direct involving a survey and questions answered privately followed by a private talk with one of the counselors on staff. They also provided food, information, and an informative video on eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating. It is all completely safe and if help is needed, they are there to suggest places to go.

Below are the Eating Disorders Screening statistics for the last 5 years. The highest attendance was Spring 2011 with 232 participants.
