Battling Body Bullying: The “Weighty” Issue of Worth

Join Good Girls Don’t Get Fat author and body image expert Dr. Robyn Silverman and the Office of Multicultural Affairs in an evening of exploring inner and outer body bullying on March 22 on the NYC Campus.

A recent poll shows that 95 percent of girls between the ages of 16 and 21 want to change their bodies in some way. That’s why the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Student Development and Campus Activities, and the Alpha Nu Chapter of the Hermandad Sigma Iota Alpha are proud to present Battling Body Bullying: The “Weighty” Issue of Worth on March 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room on the NYC Campus.

Join Dr. Robyn Silverman and OMA’s very own Theater Lab for an interactive evening to explore inner and outer body bullying and what can be done to work toward a healthier and happier body image.
