"Taking a look in the mirror: Body image from personal to professional" by Dr. Tonya R. Hammer

Body image is a growing concern in modern society as individuals are affected by societal demands of achieving an ideal image.

Dr. Tonya Hammer will share her personal story of what prompted her interest in body image and eating disorders as well as the current research being done by her and her students in their lab at OSU-Tulsa.

Current research in the lab includes studies focusing on:
· Body Image as Related to Individual Wellness
