Peer Body Project
Led by Laila Hammam

The Body Project is a body acceptance program designed for college-aged women to resist cultural pressures to conform to “ideal” appearance standards of female beauty and reduce the pursuit of unrealistic bodies.

Here are a few things to expect:

-          4 weekly sessions, 1 hour each (April 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th)

-          Groups of 5-8 undergraduate students who identify as women

-          Led by trained UNH peer educators

-          Gain powerful skills to build a healthier body image

Please plan to attend all four workshops, as the discussions build on previous groups.

For more information, please contact Laila Hammam (Laila.Hammam@unh.edu)
