Collegio B Griziotti is holding an interesting day meeting on 20th of May on Behavioural Eating Disorders.  Nutrition is a major health issue: half the deaths that occur worldwide before the age of 5 are due to under or malnutrition and 1.9 billion people out of 8 billions are obese.  Behavioural Eating Disorders are another significant health challenge. They frequently affect young people and have a major impact on the life, study and work of the persons affected.

The meeting of 20th of May involves local experts and will provide a valuable opportunity for addressing the topic. The meeting is open to students outside Collegio B Griziotti including interested members of Volta.
