Healthy Body Image

Every Spring semester, we celebrate loving yourself with positive body image during Healthy Body Image Awareness Week and provide resources on positive self-image.

Healthy Body Image Awareness Week

Healthy Body Image Awareness week always coincides with the National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness). From February 25, 2019-March 3, 2019, we will be asking students to participate in numerous activities that promote healthy and loving body image.

Throughout the week on social media, students can take the pledge to promote positive body in themselves and others to counteract media's potential influence on normalizing unrealistic body standards. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
