Finding your Voice for Change in the New Year
In our first teleconference of 2010, Doris Smeltzer, MA, shares the powerful and poignant
story of how she survived the most devastating blow imaginable – the loss of her nineteen year-old
daughter, Andrea, to bulimia – by reaching out to help others who are struggling. Doris will introduce
us to information from her new educational curriculum about how Health At Every Size (HAES) and
Intuitive Eating can help us all learn to “Savor Ourselves”. With Doris, we will experience the
empowerment that comes from rejecting the media’s messages about body shape and size and
embracing our own unique beauty.
When: Wednesday, January 13, 2010
What time: 8:00 – 9:15 p.m. Central Time
RSVP to: [email protected]
