The purpose of this project was to develop a school-based program, identify a funding source and write a grant that would fund an educational eating disorder program for students attending high school in the greater Orange County area. An extensive literature review indicated that there was an increase in eating disorders among adolescents and a need for an educational program that would provide reinforcing tools for healthy lifestyles, identification of symptoms of the illness, and resources for interventions, treatment and community referrals for both student and educators.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation was selected as a funding source for this grant as the goals of the foundation best fit this grant. More importantly to promote healthy lifestyles for children and adults so that they can live longer and healthier lives.
