We're on TV!

A belated birthday present for us!

A few weeks ago, we said that Lisa will be on ABC7’s Beyond the Headlines segment. The piece, tied to NEDAwareness Week, aired two days ago and it’s now available for streaming online.

This week’s episode of “Beyond the Headlines” talks about body image. It’s the way we perceive ourselves and how we look. Our families, our friends, social pressure, and the mass media are just some of the contributing factors. Our body image affects self-esteem and, ultimately, our mental health. Our guests talk about the misconception of beauty, social activism and how to improve one’s body image
