The Beautiful Body Project
College of Professional Studies
Eating disorders affect at least 9% of the world population (ANAD, 2020). About 28-74% of risk from eating disorders is through genetic heritability (ANAD, 2020). In the City of Whittier there is a lack of awareness and education on body positivity and eating disorders. The Beautiful Body Project will increase middle and high school student's awareness of eating disorders. It will also promote body positivity among these students. This program aims to provide resources for not only the students but also the community.
