“Look Beyond the Mirror,” the Healthy Wildcats’ yearly eye-opener about body image and eating disorders, will be observed this week. Events begin at 7 p.m. Monday in Penn’s Inn with a video-and-music presentation, followed by a panel discussion featuring students, Penn College counselors and a medical professional from the State College office of the Penn State College of Medicine/Hershey Medical Center. Students are also urged to attend “Eat, Drink and Be Mindful” from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 105C of the Bush Campus Center, which will reacquaint participants with the concept of “paying attention to what we eat, when we eat and why we eat” in order to identify and overcome personal triggers for mindless eating. And health fairs – from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Dauphin Hall lobby and from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Thursday in the lobby of the Hager Lifelong Education Center – will include interactive displays including The Scale of Fortune, the Self-Appreciation Station and the Operation Beautiful Table.
