Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW) is an annual campaign to educate the public about the realities of eating disorders and to provide hope, support, and visibility to individuals and loved ones affected by eating disorders. Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2024 is taking place on Monday, February 26 – Sunday, March 3. Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2024 stands as a pivotal moment for a nationwide dialogue, emphasizing the urgency to confront the hardships of eating disorders. More than just an awareness campaign, it acts as a catalyst for societal change, fostering open dialogues that dive into the hardships of these conditions. The initiative encourages education to eliminate misconceptions surrounding eating disorders, promoting empathy and understanding. Beyond its immediate impact, the efforts resonate long after the week concludes, leaving a lasting impact on public perceptions and attitudes toward those affected by eating disorders. Collaborations take center stage in the success of EDAW 2024. Diverse organizations and passionate advocates unite to amplify advocacy, awareness, and community building. This inclusive alliance ensures a multifaceted approach where varied perspectives contribute to addressing the challenges posed by eating disorders. The collaborative spirit extends beyond the week, creating a network of support that
endures, fostering lasting change in societal attitudes and resources for those affected. The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) actively shapes Eating Disorders Awareness Week through the powerful hashtag #EDAW. Using to its advantage the widespread reach of social media and online platforms, NEDA magnifies the impact of the campaign. By engaging a broader
audience, NEDA facilitates meaningful discussions that transcend geographical boundaries, emphasizing the importance of collective action in dismantling the stigma associated with eating disorders. NEDA WEEK, spanning from February 26 to March 1, 2024, aligns seamlessly with Eating Disorders Awareness Week. This dedicated timeframe intensifies efforts to raise awareness, provide support, and foster advocacy. NEDA’s overarching initiatives create an environment where the specific challenges posed by eating disorders are addressed comprehensively, ensuring a concentrated and effective approach to advancing the cause.
Recognized on an international scale, Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2024 emerges as a global platform for individuals and organizations to share resources, personal narratives, and vital information. Beyond breaking down stereotypes, the campaign cultivates an atmosphere of empathy and understanding. By encouraging a worldwide conversation, this week becomes a catalyst for global change, emphasizing the interconnectedness of experiences and the collective responsibility to foster a supportive environment for those impacted by eating disorders. Well before the official commencement, National Eating Disorders
Awareness Week captures the spotlight through various media outlets. This proactive engagement emphasizes the significance of early involvement in discussions surrounding eating disorders. By initiating conversations ahead of time, the week builds momentum, ensuring a more informed and receptive audience when it officially begins. This sets the stage for a week of impactful dialogues and actions, maximizing the reach and influence of the campaign.

About the Contributor
Cheikh Toure, Staff Writer
Hi my name is Cheikh Toure. I'm currently, in my 3rd year at Page High School. I am from the country of Togo, where French is our official language. Throughout my time at Page High School soccer has played a role in shaping my journey. Being part of the school's soccer team has taught me lessons in discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. Moreover, beyond the field, I've discovered a passion for writing. Fiction is particularly intriguing to me as it allows me to unleash my imagination. Whether it's embarking on thrilling adventures or exploring the depth of emotions writing has become an outlet for me to express my creativity. In addition to my love for storytelling and creativity through writing, I've developed an interest in technology and engineering. Exploring computer coding and learning about its intricacies interests me. Once I graduate from school my aspiration is to pursue a career as a software engineer. Apart from fiction and technology pursuits staying informed about world news has also become an aspect of my life. Keeping up with world news broadens my perspectives. Enhances my understanding of our evolving world. As I continue on this journey at Page High School I am grateful for the experiences that have shaped me into the person I am today. My background dedication to sportsmanship and thirst for knowledge all contribute to shaping who I am becoming. I am excited to welcome the opportunities that the future holds for me.
