Can Yale Health force underweight students to gain weight or be sent home?
I'm not sure if we're allowed links. If not, the link was to the Yale University Thinks I Have an Eating Disorder story on Huffington Post. You can google it.
(Full disclosure: I am a Yale student and I love Yale. I highly recommend it. I want to make it completely clear to anyone reading this that Yale is really an awesome place to be, and that my feelings toward Yale Health do not reflect my feelings toward the bulk of my experiences.)
Anyways, I went through/ am still kind of going through the same thing as the girl who wrote this article. Though I no longer have weekly weigh-ins, I've still had more than a few involuntary checks this year to make sure my weight hasn't dropped, and I would very much like to say "No. I'm done. No more."
Do students in this situation have a legal right to say no?
