5.	COURSE INFORMATION: MEL 4601: Diseases of Eating:
Still trying to decide which courses to register for? Diseases of Eating (MEL4601) is conducted entirely online and thus allows an amount of flexibility that cannot be found in traditional courses.   You do not even need to be in Gainesville to register for or take the class. All assignments and quizzes are submitted online, and correspondence to professors and TAs is via e-mail (of course, we can be available in person). The class is offered by the UF's College of Medicine and may be of particular interest to students pursuing a career in health-related fields. However, it is open to all undergraduate students of any major and there are no prerequisites. All quizzes are "open-book" and there are no final exams. 

MEL 4601 takes a personal look into eating disorders and how they affect students, friends, and family. The theorized relationship between pathological eating and addiction will be addressed. Important course topics include pediatric and adult obesity as well as anorexia & bulimia nervosa. The various options for treatment will be described. 

The course is designed for students with an interest in the physical, mental/emotional and social aspects of eating disorders and addiction. It is experiential in nature and written assignments are reflective of learning experiences and opinion based.

12.	EVENT: ACCENT and IOC Present: Gender Equity in Islam (NEW POSTING):
"Muslim women are often perceived as having an inferior role in Islam. Perhaps even some Muslims themselves maintain that men and women are, in fact, not equal. Interestingly, scholars often maintain that Islamic prescriptions relating to women were the most progressive of any civilization at the time. How can these two seemingly contradictory views be reconciled? Does Islam oppress women, or is it something else? To learn more about the rights of women in Islam, join ACCENT, Islam On Campus, and keynote speaker Dr. Jamillah Karim for "Gender Equity in Islam: The Elevated Status of Women".

Copies of Dr. Karim's book, "Muslim Women: Negotiating Race, Class, and Gender within the Ummah" will be available for purchase. There will also be a FREE BOOK SIGNING after!

Date: Thursday, April 2, 2009
Time: 8:00 pm, Doors open at 7:30 pm
Location: Touchdown Terrace, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, UF
