Our organization has sponsored a number of community events, including awareness walks, educational presentations, exhibits in Art Prize and our annual charity tennis tournament.  Our passion however is education and prevention.  We have established a speaker’s bureau with trained people available to communicate inspirationally and educationally about eating disorders.  We have written and purchased curriculums specifically applicable for a variety of groups: from school age children, to youth, to adults both male and female; from parents,  to medical professionals, teachers and coaches.  It is also  our desire to connect those seeking treatment with the best resources available in our area.

Through these avenues we strive to bring a message of positive self esteem and healthy body image to people all over Michigan.
