How does America’s obsession with dieting impact the treatment and recovery of individuals with eating disorders? What does this mean for family members and friends supporting them, or for other parents, coaches or educators hoping to prevent eating disorders? How does it affect the work of eating disorder treatment professionals, educators, and others working to combat unhealthy obsession with body image?

Join Timberline Knolls and award-winning filmmaker Darryl Roberts for Fort Worth’s first public screening of “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments.”

This eye-opening documentary film explores some of the ways the diet and weight loss industry exploits our fear of fat, and shows how the struggle to cope with mixed messages about body size, weight and nutrition affects real people. Following the showing, former Miss America Kirsten Haglund will lead an interactive panel discussion including the film’s director as well as Timberline Knolls Medical Director Dr. Kim Dennis, who is featured in the film, and Nutrition Coordinator Juliet Zuercher.
7PM THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2012 @ NATIONAL COWGIRL MUSEUM, FORT WORTH (Off I-30 at Montgomery, across from the Will Rogers Memorial Center) Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be provided starting at 6pm. Space is limited, reserve your seat today:
