William Hornby: Why is there no representation for men with eating disorders?
William Hornby is at the forefront of raising awareness for men with eating disorders with his advocacy on social media. He speaks publicly on advocacy, mental health, and eating disorder recovery. He travels around the world both in person and virtually giving workshops and presentations on “The Power of Becoming the Advocate You Needed”. He is the recipient of the William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award for 2021 and he sits on the youth advisory board for the Eating Disorder Coalition. He has collaborated with the National Alliance for Eating Disorders and The National Eating Disorder Association.
In episode 353 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why William chose Temple University for his undergraduate experience, what is body dysmorphic disorder, what we should do on bad days where you feel like you don’t deserve to eat, why there is no representation for men with eating disorders, why a cup of coffee is not a good breakfast, how we get out of this anti-fat bias, how we can talk to a friend if they are struggling with eating and their body, what steps someone should take if they are starting their own eating disorder recovery journey, what students will learn from “The Power of Becoming the Advocate You Needed”, and how our student listeners build out a big following for themselves around a cause they believe in. Enjoy!
