Eating disorders, obesity and unhealthy dieting practices are a serious public health concern due to their high prevalence and adverse effects on psychological and physical health. The cost to the public health system is also of concern at all levels of Government and the Health Insurance sector. The increasing occurrence illustrates the urgent need to address the relationship between eating disorders and obesity, and other recommendations of health promoting activities. Susan Yanovski, Director of the Obesity and Eating Disorders Program at the National Institutes of Diabetes in the USA told a conference audience "The eventual goal is not to think about obesity as a single problem, but to define the type of obesity with psychological and blood tests, and to weigh the genetic influences. Then we can target specific behavioural or pharmacological interventions". This conference will encompass contemporary best practice, multidisciplinary care and research into the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and treatments relating to eating disorders and obesity. It will also examine Government and Health Sector Initiatives. It will bring together clinical practitioners, academics, mental health experts and public health administrators from Australasia. Shared information will include; • On-going Research and Outcomes • New Knowledge Developments: programs and strategies • Latest evidence and guidelines on early diagnosis and successful case management • New Treatments • Research Validation of Early Intervention Strategies • Prevention Strategies: examine and review effectiveness • Translational Research - from lab bench to the clinic and individual patient • Discussion on Best Practice • Government and Health Sector Initiatives

Be the Model Fashion Show
Date: April 27, 2014
Time: 2:00 PM
Location: United States
City: Atlanta
State: GA
Details: Be the Model® is an outreach and prevention program initiated by the Manna Fund in order to raise awareness that our youth has the power to "be the model" - both in their community, as well as in our Bloomingdale's-based fashion show. Youth from 10-18 initiate their desire to be in the fashion show by submitting a 60-90 second video on how they will be a role model in their community, as well as why they would want to be in our family-based fashion show at Bloomingdale's on April 27, 2014. Manna's campaign is designed to not only help prevent the mindset that leads to eating disorders, but also create a movement and outlet for our youth to change the media-based belief about beauty. We believe that our youth are the key to positive change for the future. Hearing their ideas on how to change our society's mindset on what beautiful is will then change our society, and help prevent the eating disorder epidemic. We also believe in the power of family. Parents have such a powerful impact on the beliefs of their children! Its why we want the family to be involved! So, what we are asking for are their ideas - and their commitments - on how they will be a "role model" regarding changing the idea about what being beautiful is. Please encourage your children to participate in our program, by doing the following: Be the Model Fashion Show Contestants must be between 10-18 to enter All contestants create a video between 60-90 seconds, placed on youtube, and link sent to: info@mannafund.org (if this is an issue, please email us the video or contact us for alternate means of getting the video) Deadline for video submission is March 31, 2014 Video message should contain: 1. How you will "Be the Model" in your community, by representing healthy self-esteem, promoting healthy body image at every size, and helping prevent the eating disordered mindset 2. Why you and your family should be represented in our fashion show at Bloomingdale's Our sample video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gddpo0RKooc
