Newcomb Hall, South Meeting Room

Whether the kids in your life are toddlers or teens or somewhere in between, helping them to grow up with a healthy mindset about eating and exercise is a challenge.

Abby Palko, director of the Women’s Center, and Margaret Edwards, LPC (Educ '09), the center’s program director for counseling and wellness services, will share insights they’ve gained in working with college students on how we can all model a body positive outlook and help our kids thrive.
