"First,we will learn about this eating disorder in order to be
able to answer these and many other questions related to this topic
and then we'll use all
the information gathered to create our own project, which will consist
in launching a campaign to prevent and fight anorexia in your school.
In order to have an overall view of this illness, we are going to
work in groups of three.
Each member of the group will adopt a specific role so that you can
get the information from different points of view:
a nutritionist, a psychologist and somebody worried about a friend
who is or may be an anorexic."
