Meet, Eat, and Learn is Jan. 30

Please join us for a Meet, Eat and Learn discussion about "Body Image Across Cultures" from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan.30, at the International Centre.

This presentation will explore how body image ideals vary from culture to culture and why these differences exist. Learning about these differences will help us understand how the cultures we grew up and live in influence our views of the human body. Examples will be taken from various African, Indian, Asian, Arab, and Western cultures.

What is Meet, Eat and Learn? It's a monthly presentation where you can learn something new, share views and ideas, and interact with others - all while enjoying a delicious and free lunch. Topics are ever-changing and are related to issues that affect the UND community and beyond. Everyone is welcome, and lunch is provided.
