THE SECOND ANNUAL "VOICES - NOT BODIES" CANDLELIGHT VIGIL FOR EATING DISORDERS AWARENESS

April 26, 2003 in Washington, DC
This is part of a nationwide campaign, sponsored by the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders and individual community groups.

What are the goals of Voices � Not Bodies?
Attendees will learn about the prevention of eating disorders, treatment options, and related topics such as body image and size-acceptance from professionals and representatives of many organizations. Many sufferers and family members often feel isolated by these disorders and this event will give them an opportunity to meet and talk to others. Survivors of those who have died from eating disorders will be able to list their loved-ones names on a memorial display, and mourn together during the candle lighting. * All attendees will be invited to read and sign a pledge to "Accept Ourselves � Accept Others," which is ANAD�s motto.

For more information, please visit voicesnotbodies.tripod.com
