Jessie’s Legacy Speakers Bureau

Our Speakers Bureau is available to present at schools and groups throughout the Lower Mainland for a very nominal fee.  We have developed a power point presentation that addresses eating disorders and disordered eating, media awareness, resiliency skills, and weight and shape bias.  The presentation takes about 80 minutes, with time for Q & A built in, and can be content-specific for grades 6 through 12.  If your school or group is interested, contact Shelley Hine at Family Services of the North Shore    This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
