Eating and Body Image, Talk with Expert Jenni Shaefer Wed. 7pm

“Perfectly Imperfect: Eating and Body Image” with Jenni Schaefer

Wed. Nov. 28, 7pm

UMC 235

The Conference on World Affairs Athenaeum will host a free public talk “Perfectly Imperfect: Eating and Body Image” with internationally known eating disorder expert Jenni Schaefer on Wednesday, November 28 at 7 p.m.

The talk will take place in the University Memorial Center, room 235. Schaefer, whose own eating issues began as a young child, created an approach to the disorder that enables men and women to personify their illness. As part of her own healing process, she named her illness “ED,” short for eating disorder.

Her first book, Life Without ED, turned into a national bestseller and has helped expand and improve approaches to treating eating disorders. Schaefer is a regular commentator on television shows such as Dr. Phil and Entertainment Tonight. In addition to her books, her writing has appeared in The New York Times and Cosmopolitan.

STUDENTS – Be sure to check out the FREE student-only dinner with Jenni on Thursday, November 29. RSVP required – ath@colorado.edu
