For anyone affected by an eating disorder, consider attending the 9th annual NYC NEDA Walk on Sunday, October 1st 2017. Their mission is to support individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care. Over 30 million men and woman suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder throughout their lifetime in the United States, but the scope and severity of eating disorders are often misunderstood.
