Help Overcome Problems with Eating and Excercise


The HOPE Team is a multidisciplinary team approach for students with disordered eating and exercise behaviors.  The goals of the HOPE Team are to provide students that are suffering from eating and exercise disorders with an on-campus resource to give them what they need in terms of education, evaluation, and eventual recovery.
