A Tailored Program for UNH Groups and Classrooms   

We are available to present The Body Project to your group, class, Greek house or residence hall. The program focuses on the pressures college students may endure related to body image, eating concerns and the way in which mass media perpetuate these issues. Students will learn how to challenge media ideals, fat talk statements among peer groups, increase their confidence, and overall decrease their chances of obtaining an eating disorder.

  • The Body Project is an evidence-based program that is presented nationally at college campuses
  • All genders welcome
