There is an exciting upcoming opportunity for students to take part in a 4-week evidence-based program called The Body Project! Here is some more information provided below about the program:

The Body Project is an evidenced-based body acceptance program offered in a group setting that provides a safe space for all women to confront and challenge unrealistic appearance ideals through group discussion and interactive activities. The program seeks to give participants knowledge in developing a healthier body image and self-esteem. In numerous research studies, it has repeatedly been shown to effectively reduce body dissatisfaction and internalization of the appearance ideal. Open to all women who are undergraduate and graduate students. Non-binary students are welcome, but this course focuses more on topics regarding societal ideals of femme-presenting bodies than on topics related to gender identity and expression.

Dates: March 14th, 21st, 28th, and April 4th

Time: 4:00 - 5:00 pm

Location: UHS 4th Floor RAM Room

Facilitators: Facilitators are from multidisciplinary backgrounds working on this project with the Division Adolescent Medicine at University of Rochester Medical Center.

*Attendance is strongly encouraged for all 4 sessions.
