Northwest to host body image workshop Nov. 20

Christina Bokenkamp-Hruby, manager of professional outreach and an outpatient therapist at the Eating Disorders Center of Denver, is bringing her workshop about body image to Northwest Missouri State University.

Bokenkamp-Hruby will present “Body Image and the Media: What Are You Buying?” from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, in the J.W. Jones Student Union Tower View Dining Room.

“What Are You Buying?” is a deeper exploration of what the media is “selling,” what consumers are “buying,” and how the two impact our sense of self and body image.    

The event is open to Northwest students and employees. It is sponsored by Northwest Personal Development and Counseling and Wellness Services.
