Do you like what you see in the mirror? According to a Yahoo Health survey in 2015, only 1 in 7 Americans feels "body positive" about themselves.

Lafene Health Center and Counseling Services have collaborated to bring you the Body Project, a nationally acclaimed, peer-to-peer program designed to promote body acceptance among college-aged students. Don't allow cultural pressures to conform to the "appearance-ideal" define you. Be an advocate for yourself and your peers.

Two Body Project workshops will take place in October and November. Each workshop will have two sessions, both from 7-9 p.m. in 3043 Business Building. Please choose a set of the workshop that works best for your schedule. You will receive a confirmation email prior to your workshop date.

Note: Please be sure that you are able to attend both sessions under that workshop. Space for each workshop is limited, so registration is required. Reserve your spot today.

For more information, email ksubodyproject@k-state.edu or contact the Body Project co-chairs Dianna Schalles at 785-532-5240 or Wendy Barnes at 785-532-6927.
