UCLA March 2 by Noted Artist Leigh de Vries and BDD Research Program Director Dr. Jamie Feusner
As part of their Anorexia Awareness Week program, UCLA presents a very exciting and educational event, “Body Dysmorphic Disorder Explored,” that investigates the intersection of art and science, bringing together international, multidisciplinary artist Leigh de Vries and leading body dysmorphic expert Dr. Jamie Feusner, Professor-in-Residence in the UCLA Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, at the De Neve Auditorium on UCLA’s Westwood campus March 2 from 6-9pm.
Co programmed by two UCLA undergraduate groups – Active Minds and the Student Wellness Commission Body Image Task Force, the event will revolve around artist Leigh de Vries’s short film “Exposure: The Broken Reality Tunnel,” brief talks from each, and then a Q&A session around the urgent topics of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and eating disorders and how these disorders can intersect.
