If you haven't done it yet, this is the week to recognize eating disorders

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:32pm

National Eating Disorders Awareness Week began Sunday, and runs through March 1. And those who are trying to spread awareness of the illness will be everywhere.

The National Eating Disorders Association, for one, is looking for volunteers to be part of the NBC Today Show crowd to launch "NEDAwareness Week" before millions of TV viewers throughout the country.

This week, you're asked to be there between 5:15 and 8:30 a.m. every morning, at 1 Rockefeller Plaza (on 48th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, outside Dean & Deluca) in New York City.

Helpers will be there to meet you and provide materials you'll need for the event: NEDAWareness Poster Signs, a NEDA banner and ribbons to wear on your lapel to promote this year's NEDAW "Embrace Your Genes" campaign.

Contact NEDA via email if you are able to help with this initiative at emccormick@myneda.org.
