Eating Issues Group
MHCs Counseling Services will be offering a group for women

The group, facilitated by Devon Kelting, psychologist, and Laura
Stegenga, graduate social work intern, will meet on Fridays throughout
spring semester, beginning February 15 at the Pattie J. Groves
Health Center. The meeting time will be determined by the group
members. Prescreening is required; call x2037.
