Anna Maria College Students to Unveil Life-Size G.I. Joe
February 14, 2013
Anna Maria College announces that its chapter of the national organization, Active Minds, will be hosting a panel discussion on eating disorders as it reveals its life-size model of G.I. Joe on February 25, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. at the College’s Zecco Performing Arts Center.
Last year, students associated with the Active Minds club created a life-size Barbie and this year in an attempt to bring more to the conversation, a life-size G.I. Joe was created. Experts in the field: Cynthia Graber, Ph.D, Anna Sweeny, RD, Renee Bazinet, Ph.D., Laura Roias, MSW, LICSW, and Irene Tolman, MA will participate in a panel discussion during the reveal event to examine how to change a culture that reinforces impossible body image stereotypes and how to support friends and family members struggling with disordered eating or body image.
