The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Asian-identifying college students with self-reported disordered eating

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to uncertainty in the lives of many individuals. This has become a stressor, especially for college students, due to illness, job insecurity, lack of social interaction, etc. We are interested in studying the effects of the pandemic on eating behaviors, overall health and lifestyle of Asian-identifying college students. Asian-identifying individuals make up one of the smallest demographics in diagnosed disordered eating but one of the largest demographics to self-report disordered eating. We hope to uncover the effects that this pandemic has had on disordered eating behaviors in this particular demographic to add to the present literature and find potential connections between COVID-19, disordered eating, and various cultures.
