WELCOME

ABIDE is a group dedicated to raising awareness about how society might
influence one’s relationship to one’s body and to food. We offer a holistic understanding of body image and healthy eating in a context that recognizes racial, sexual, gender, (dis)ability, and class identity’s influence in the University community.
We believe that we can prevent and reduce eating disorders and the
prevalence of body image oppression through education, outreach, support, and intervention.

The Association of Body Image and Disordered Eating is a U.C. Davis
committee composed of representatives from Campus Recreation and Unions, Student Health and Counseling Services, UC Davis Dining Services and the Women’s Resources and Research Center.
