The aim of the project is to develop eating disorders training modules for pre-professional students to provide eating disorders education. The outcome of this project will provide a means to expand educational opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students with an eating disorders micro-certificate. In summary, we formalized a leadership team and we met one time. We also met with nursing and social work faculty for possible collaboration. We started to develop 4 modules: an overview of eating disorders; webinars on topics such as medical aspects for undergraduate nursing students, treatment modalities for clinical mental health counseling students, addiction and eating disorders to addiction graduate certificate students; weight stigma webinar/discussion; body project/acceptance program. The acceptance by the leadership team and the pilot of the learning modules and evaluation will be continued into the fall semester if funding is provided for continuation of this project.
