Gloria Lucas: Historical Traumas & Eating Disorders

10/19/2021 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Multicultural Student Center, Newcomb Hall, Level 2

For the past 30 years, eating disorders have been represented as a white, middle-class phenomenon. Due to the lack of representation of people of color and indigenous populations with troubled eating have suffered from high rates of undiagnosed conditions, inaccessible treatment, and culturally insensitive practices.

In this presentation, participants will have the ability to evaluate eating disorders through a social justice lens that centers the experiences of people of color and indigenous descent people.
