“STRIPED gave me a unique opportunity to approach eating disorders and unhealthy body image prevention from an innovative and multidisciplinary perspective.  Through my projects, I’ve learned not only how vulnerable groups, like adolescents, are targeted with misleading images and information about cosmetic procedures, but also I’ve learned a lot about what lawmakers could do to protect these groups and prevent harm. STRIPED is doing great work calling attention to cutting edge public health issues.”                -Katherine Cohen, JD
