Posted on February 25, 2014 by Dr. DeahNEDA Google+ Page, but all past Hangouts are archived there as well!
The Next Google Hangout will be: “Behind the Lens”: The Fashion Industry, Beauty Ideals and Eating Disorders, Thursday, February 27, 2014 @ 3pm ET/ 12pm PTIn recognition of NEDAwareness Week 2014, the National Eating Disorders Association has teamed up with the Model Alliance to present a live Google Hangout with NEDA Ambassador, Model Alliance Advisory Board member, model, activist, and author Carré Otis and model and activist Brittany Mason. Panelists will explore the connection between fashion industry beauty ideals, the pressures consumers face to satisfy these unrealistic expectations and how these contribute to the onset of eating disorders & body image issues. Our panelists will also discuss the changes that are happening within the fashion industry to better protect working models’ health and rights, as well as exploring what consumers can do to promote positive change.
This week, I will be pinning about eating disorders on the WEGO Health ‘s Women’s Health board and on my Cultivate a Positive Body Image board. If you have any resources to add please let me know!
