On Thursday at 4 p.m., Milpitas Library will give a presentation as part of Eating Disorder Awareness Week.

Up to 24 million Americans of all ages and backgrounds suffer from some type of eating disorder at some point in their lives, according to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).

In an effort to educate the public about eating disorders, the Santa Clara County Library District is hosting a series of talks, displays, take away information and books for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

An information session for teens on the subject will be held at the Milpitas Library on February 28 at 4 p.m. 

“It is possible that each of us knows someone with an eating disorder,” said County of Santa Clara Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Delegate for the County Library District Joint Powers Authority, in a press release.

”Our libraries can provide information that may shed some light and provide help for those who are directly impacted.”
