“ED 101, was an incredibly useful tool for the women of Delta Phi Epsilon during our annual Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders Vigil. Not only is it an extremely informative film, but the personal stories woven throughout the scenes help the viewer to understand and appreciate the true realities of eating disorders. The film served as a wonderful method to introduce the topic of eating disorders to the women in my organization and stimulate a discussion about personal mindfulness and how to maintain a positive body image in a college environment.” ~Lily Jordahl, Vice President of Programming, NYU Delta Phi Epsilon
