The public is invited and encouraged to attend this free week of events. To view the calendar of scheduled events, visit www.sierracollege.edu/lybw. Directions and maps to the two participating campuses can also be found on this website.

“We must begin to challenge the mainstream notions of the ideal body,” said Megan Seely, professor of sociology and women’s studies at Sierra College. “Love Your Body Week gives us the opportunity to educate and empower while dispelling the myths and misconceptions perpetuated by advertising, media and popular culture.” said Megan Seely, Professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies at Sierra College.
