Eating Disorders Awareness “Week” was kicked off with an amazing production "Food Prisons." Now we turn our attention to looking at how our society portrays beauty. Darryl Roberts documentary film, “America the Beautiful,” explores the fashion industry, our current cultural standards of beauty, and how this effects our youth. Though the film focuses on the perception of beauty and its effect on youth, it leads into the extremes that help trigger and promote eating disorders. Consequently, after the movie, a panel of professionals will be fielding questions and facilitating discussions related to eating disorders and behavior depicted in the film.
