One of the winners was Tucson Village Farm, a program designed to reconnect young people to a healthy food system by teaching them to grow and prepare fresh food and to empower them to make healthy life choices.
Other grants went to the University of Arizona’s Campus Health Service for partnering with Iaedp to offer The Body Positive training to college students, and to Pima County Arizona Schools to support The Body Positive training for educators, nurses, counselors, and coaches within their school system. The Body Positive training provides practical tools and leadership skills while conveying messages of self-care, confidence and positive body image in order to prevent self-destructive behaviors and choices.
The winners were announced at Iaedp – Tucson’s Mad Hatter Tea Party gala on Nov. 15. We were also happy to be able to sponsor raffle prizes for that event. We are thankful for the opportunity to take part in the efforts of iaedp and these outstanding community organizations to raise awareness about eating disorders.
