EVENT BY NEDIC:
"Our goal is to showcase the voices of people who have lived experience of an eating disorder, or who have helped a loved one through a struggle. As eating disorders remain incredibly misunderstood throughout our society, and we hope to increase awareness and urgency in addressing the misconceptions. Eating disorders are not a choice, and they can affect all different types of people. We will have a wide range of performers from different genders, backgrounds, and ages, and showcase their art and their voices as a call for more prevention, awareness, and attention to the field of eating disorders.
$10 or $5 at the door for students with valid ID"
