Monmouth University’s Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority has developed a website to raise awareness about eating disorders. Delta Phi Epsilon member Marisa Meiskin developed the website as a project for the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD). Marisa stated: “I created the website to hopefully spread awareness about eating disorders and more importantly to let people know that recovery is possible and there is so much more to life than anxiety over body image.”
Delta Phi Epsilon President Kait Muller commented: “Body Image and eating disorders are topics that are extremely important to Delta Phi Epsilon’s Delta Omega Chapter. Not only is ANAD one of our philanthropies, but we have personally been impacted by the disorder, and can see the pain and suffering it can put an individual through.”
This site helps to promote positive body image and self-appreciation. In addition, the site shows that recovery is possible. Visitors can post messages anonymously on the site as well as speak out and share their thoughts, inspirations, or stories.
