To be announced

The Positive Body Image Symposium focuses on how ideas and stereotypes concerning body image can impact the quality of everyday life. By acknowledging the role society, media, peers, and other influences play, we can begin to break down some of the barriers they constitute and move towards awareness that our bodies are powerful and are there to serve us in a positive way. This year the conference will be presenting a great combination of local ISU faculty and guest presenters. The Positive Body Image Symposium offers a unique opportunity for ISU students of all levels, as well as interested community members, to experience a professional conference without having to travel or pay expensive registration fees.  The symposium offers anyone needing CE's, the opportunity to get them by attending the symposium.
