Thank you to team contributor, Primary Therapist Jamie Blosser Morris, MS, LMHC, our participating Oliver-Pyatt Centers team members, and the Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness for hosting the 4th Annual celebrating everyBODY walk for eating disorder awareness. We look forward to seeing you all at the event!
On Saturday, February 28th, Oliver-Pyatt Centers’ staff, alumni, and supporters will be participating in The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness 4th annual celebrating everyBODY: a walk for eating disorders awareness. We are excited to join The Alliance and the community at large in spreading the message of hope and recovery in South Florida!
All proceeds raised at this community event will directly fund the preparation, printing, and distribution of the Florida Eating Disorder Referral Guide. The purpose of the guide is to expand access to care for those struggling with an eating disorder and to provide thorough and easily accessible referrals to healthcare practitioners who specialize in the treatment of eating disorders. These invaluable resources have aided professionals across the state in aftercare planning and have supported in broadening our referral network.
We are so proud and honored to support this event. We believe that recovery is possible when individuals and families have the opportunity to access and receive treatment. And we believe that recovery is sustained with a strong community of support and care. These are a few of the reasons #whywewalk. We hope to see you all at the event next Saturday!
Participate, donate, and promote the event through social media here.
