Our Bodies, Ourselves: The Fat Body (In)Visible Film Screening and Discussion* February 27, Student Center: Room 320, 6pm
Join us for a screening of The Fat Body (In)Visible, a documentary by fat activist Margitte Kristjansson. The film illustrates not only how women in general are told to feel about their bodies, but also how women work to make their fat bodies seen in a world that would rather they remain hidden. Body acceptance activists explore the intersections of race and gender with fatness and find new and inventive ways to be proudly visible subjects through the strategic use of fashion and social media.

College Response Screening Event – as part of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week
February 28, Student Center, 10am-1pm
In the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from an eating disorder at some point during their life. February 22nd-February 28th is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. If you think you may have an eating disorder, you are far from alone. There are different reasons why eating disorders happen, and different forms they can take (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder), but the one thing they all have in common is that they can have very serious consequences – not just on your academic record, but for your physical and mental wellbeing. During Campus Services Carnivale on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 students, staff, and faculty can complete an anonymous online screening for eating disorders. The screening takes less than 3 minutes. Follow #KnowYourScoreGT to learn about a month long campaign to encourage: Healthy Mind. Healthy Body. Recovery begins with the decision to try.
