EAU CLAIRE — A seminar on eating disorders will be presented at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Tuesday, Nov. 9.
"An Obsession to Die For: An Eating Disorder" is the title of the 90-minute presentation, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Schofield Auditorium. A reception and question-and-answer session will follow the program. Admission is free and open to all.
In the presentation, Christine Nicklaus will share with candor and sincerity how her battle with bulimia and anorexia almost cost her life.
Nicklaus is the founder and president of H.O.P.E. (Healthy Options to Prevent Eating Disorders) Seminars. Its mission is to help others realize the gift of life and to motivate them to embrace it.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Nicklaus earned a bachelor of science degree with a major in psychology. She is a passport-holding member of the Wisconsin Professional Speakers Association and a member of the Wisconsin Eating Disorder Network. She has spoken to thousands of youth and young adults in schools and universities throughout the Midwest.
Nicklaus survived a six-year battle with bulimia and anorexia. She is now on a mission to help educate the public about the dangers of eating disorders and is writing a book titled "Diary of an Eating Disorder."
The program is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
