With Katherine Schreiber
Katherine Schreiber, co-author of The Truth About Exercise Addiction: Understanding the Dark Side of Thinspiration, will read excerpts from her book, outline the symptoms, prevalence, and health tolls of exercise addiction; share her own story, and discuss how the media (specifically thinspiration and fitspiration campaigns) reinforce a cultural obsession with fitness that obscures the signs of unhealthy and often dangerous behavior.
