Dr. Wood: Eating disorders are not limited to young women

Many people believe that an eating disorder is when a person, usually a young girl, just won’t eat enough food. Perhaps that person exercises excessively (often losing a drastic amount of weight in a short period of time), or eats too much food and then vomits on purpose. However, eating disorders affect more than just young girls, and include a wide variety of food and eating issues. In fact, 20 million women and 10 million men will suffer from an eating disorder at some time in their lives.

This may have been the most important play UW basketball has ran all season

The Washington Huskies basketball team was not picked to do well this season and by February, there was talk of them having one of the best years in recent memory.

Mike Hopkins and his staff knew the expectations were becoming a distraction. So what did they do? They created another distraction that helped UW to its first in in more than a week.
