Body Empowerment Project

The Oregon Research Institute invites female students to participate in a study aimed at helping young women feel better about their bodies.

Some study participants will get to attend four, one-hour Body Empowerment classes designed to improve body image. This intervention has been found to improve body satisfaction, reduce risk for eating disorders, and improve school and social functioning. The classes will be held here at OSU. All study participants will complete interviews and surveys related to body image and mood, and will receive up to $165 over three years for completing all interviews and surveys.

If you have body image concerns and would like to participate, please email bodyproject@ori.org for more information and to see if you qualify.
