EMBRACE: Changing Our Minds About Changing Our Bodies

Mar 10, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Global spending on ‘beauty’ and ‘wellness’ has reached $2 trillion a year, yet our body image and mental health are on the decline. So what if we’re getting this all wrong? What if we can unlock better health and happiness, not by changing our bodies, but by changing our minds? Join global body image advocate, filmmaker and 2023 Australian of the Year Taryn Brumfitt as she blends science with storytelling to turn everything you thought you knew about weight, appearance, and health on its head, revealing that better body image is not only crucial for our happiness, but also for our health.
