Eating Disorders Awareness Week Breakfast 2014 

Join the Conversation

Join us at the Hilton, Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 at 6:30am for our 5th Annual Breakfast.

This years keynote speaker is Claire Mysko.  Claire is an award winning author and is internationally recognized for her positive body image work.  She has served as the director of the American Anorexia Bulimia Association and has held senior positions at SmartGirl and Girls Incorporated.  At the breakfast she will explore how cultural messages about beauty and body image affect us throughout our lives.  From pressure to be the perfect girl to the expectation that we should get our bodies back as new mothers and do everything in our power to defy our age.   Claire will offer strategies for using body image activism as a means to bring about personal and social change.

Her books include:  You’re Amazing and Does this Pregnancy Make me Look Fat?
