“I attended the APCA Houston conference this fall and was lucky to see Loree speak. She is amazing. Her life story is incredible, and she deeply cares about warning and educating students about drug addiction and drug use. She is open and straight-forward in taking about Meth, gambling, addiction and shares firsthand the effects that addiction has had on her family and loved ones’ lives. She makes a frightening impact. I highly recommend her to come to speak at your school.”

“After hearing Loree’s presentation, I realized that my dad had a gambling problem, and that I have a problem with drinking, mostly binge drinking.”

National Eating Disorder
Awareness (NEDA) Week
Feb 20-26, 2011

Our aim of NEDAwareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices — and it’s important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.

NEDAwareness Week is a collective effort of primarily volunteers, including eating disorder professionals, health care providers, students, educators, social workers, and individuals committed to raising awareness of the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment.

"WOW! Until hearing Loree, I never realized how a student could seem totally fine on the outside but on the inside they're experiencing an addictive behavior. Loree has a message that both students and staff must hear and could help to save lives!"

-James Malinchak, "Two-Time College Speaker of the Year!" Co-Author, Chicken Soup for the College Soul
