EDs and career choice/tertiary study

With reference to this post: http://community.livejournal.com/ed_ucate/545185.html which relates to individuals with EDs who choose career paths associated with their disorder, I'd like to create a wider discussion on careers in general. 

If you are studying at tertiary level, what course are you studying? Has this been influenced by your eating disorder or has studying this degree/diploma influenced your disorder in any way? 
What career paths are you interested in? [Regardless of whether it has to do with your ED, I'm interested to know] 
Will your eating disorder hinder you from pursuing this occupation? How? 

The jist that I get from this community is that many of us believe general society and public are very ignorant with issues related to eating disorders. So in the hypothetical situation [or even reality if that's your case] that you are working in public health - more specifically medical and psychological fields - would you work to create more awareness in eating disorders? 

^_^
