The Center for Counseling & Health Promotion is sponsoring this program featuring Kitty Westin and Dr. Ellen Kerber on Monday, March 3, 2003 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in the East Commons.

Westin will tell the story of her daughter, Anna, who died as a direct result of anorexia. Together they will explain how to identify symptoms of disordered eating, how to access help, how to help a friend and how people have taken their lives back from eating disorders through recovery. Westin will also relate grassroots advocacy efforts to improve mental health coverage that arose from her family's experience.
