ABIDE or the Association of Body Image and Disordered Eating is a UC Davis group dedicated to raising campus 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.
