Respect Your Body

For SJSU's "Respect Your Body Week," the Student Wellness Center has partnered with a couple of local eating disorder treatment centers to sponsor some fantastic presenters. Each event is FREE and open to students, staff, faculty, and the greater community. 

*Both speakers will offer fantastic clinical perspectives and have done trainings to numerous clinicians in the field through developmental opportunities and at various conferences. I highly recommend this one to SHC & CAPS Staff.
