The week of Feb. 5 through 9 has been designated Body Acceptance Week at Brigham Young University, sponsored by Women’s Services.
This week is intended to encourage both women and men to love and appreciate their bodies the way that they are and also to learn to maintain their health.
To kick off the week's event, all of the mirrors in the Wilkinson Student Center will be covered for "Mirrorless Monday" to help students realize they do not need to rely on appearance for acceptance.
On Tuesday at noon, Amy Despain will present a lecture on intuitive eating, and on Wednesday at 2 p.m., Steve Thomsen will discuss body image and media concerns. In addition, a panel of eating disorder survivors will answer audience questions on Thursday at 11 a.m.
All of these events will be held in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on the first level.
The public is welcome to attend all events. For more information, call Women's Services at (801) 422-4877.
