Description: 

The mission of NEDAwareness Week
The aim of NEDAwareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices — and it’s important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.

NEDAwareness Week is a collective effort of primarily volunteers, eating disorder professionals, health care providers, educators, social workers, and individuals committed to raising awareness of the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment.
 
How NEDAwareness Week Works
This year, NEDA is calling for everyone to do just one thing to help raise awareness and provide accurate information about eating disorders.  NEDAwareness Week participants can choose from a huge range of ways to contribute: Distribute info pamphlets and put up posters, write one letter for Media Watchdogs, register as a Volunteer Speaker or host a Volunteer Speaker, coordinate a NEDA Walk, or arrange interactive and educational activities such as panel discussions, fashion shows, body fairs, movie screenings, art exhibits and more. As an official NEDAwareness Week participant you can be involved in any way that works with your schedule, resources, community, and interests. These events and activities attract public media attention - on local, national and international levels.

Description: 

National Hazing Prevention Week 2010 is from September 20 - 24!

The National Hazing Prevention Week is observed on campuses and within organizations and includes a variety of activities including: brown bag discussions among faculty, movie showings, training for organizational and team leaders and the signing of anti-hazing pledges. Some programs plan activities for the entire week while others plan one or two meaningful events.

The goal of National Hazing Prevention Week is to prevent hazing from happening by educating parents, faculty, students, community members, police and others so they can more easily recognize hazing - and most importantly, so that they have the skills to intervene when hazing does occur.

A planning document is available to help you and your community get started!

It puts a heavy emphasis on the benefits to researchers and practitioners who work together to create effective evidence-based policies and practices.

Combining the former DNA Grantees Workshop with the NIJ Conference allows us to feature innovations in forensic sciences and related policy and resource issues.
