School & Community

Eating disorders are a growing epidemic in our schools and communities, but with early detection, intervention, and awareness, each of us can make a difference. On Nov. 19, nine teachers, counselors, and coaches from Great Neck Public high schools and middle schools took part in The NEDA Body Project Facilitator Training. The facilitator training, which was funded wholly through support from the Grace Holland Cozine Foundation, endeavors to provide these educators with the skills and resources to run workshops that provide a forum for women and girls to confront unrealistic beauty ideals and engage them in the development of healthy body image through verbal, written, and behavioral exercises. NEDA has additional resources that will help you plan educational events and activities in your community. Read more >
