Student Health Clinic

Welcome New Panthers!

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Northern Iowa has taken numerous public health measures to help protect students, employees and guests from the spread of COVID-19. These efforts have allowed us to safely offer in-person instruction and on-campus activities.

Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders 

Eating disorders are not necessarily about food, but food is the tool that people with eating disorders abuse. Eating disorders have both physical and psychological symptoms. They are characterized by abnormal attitudes and feelings about food, weight and body shape, an extreme disruption in eating behaviors and weight management, and intense anxiety about body weight and size.

University of Northern Iowa offers evaluation and treatment for eating disorders. Students with eating disorders may receive assistance through self-referral, by referral from a friend or parent, or by referral from another campus professional. Students can receive coordinated care that includes medical evaluation, psychological evaluation, nutritional and lifestyle counseling and women's clinic services.
