On Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., OASIS (Outreach and Advocacy: Sexuality Information for Students) will sponsor a variety of interactive information booths, along with free giveaways, for Love Your Body Day . Exhibitors, which include the Women’s Resource Center, will be set up in the Ballroom, D.P. Culp University Center. ETSU students, faculty, and staff will have access to everything from free massage therapy to healthy eating tips to women’s health information.
In response to unhealthy and exploitive images of women in the media, NOW Foundation established the Love Your Body Campaign to promote positive, healthy images of women and girls, protest harmful and offensive advertisements, and raise awareness about women's health issues.
For more information on Love Your Body Day , contact Melissa Meadows, OASIS graduate assistant, at OASIS firstname.lastname@example.org .
