Upcoming Events at Vanderbilt
IMAGE week Survivor Panel – 2/18
Always a highlight of IMAGE week, Thursday will be the Survivor Panel. Panel members include; a student survivor, an adult survivor, Vida Sobie from the Psychological and Counseling Center, and this year new to the panel, the husband of our adult survivor. While Vida shares professional opinions, our survivors will share their amazing stories of overcoming the most deadly mental disorder. In addition, our spouse will be able to field questions about his experience in marriage with an eating disorder survivor from having a child to the worry for a loved one. Promising to be an emotional and intimate night, the survivor panel allows a glimpse into the chaotic world of being an eating disordered individual.
7:00-8:30 p.m. Buttrick 309
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Production of “The Vagina Monologues” – 2/19
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine’s production of “The Vagina Monologues” will take place on Friday, Feb. 19, at 6 p.m. in Langford Auditorium, and will feature faculty, staff, and students.
Admission is by a $5 suggested donation or free with the purchase of a $10 event T-shirt. Proceeds will benefit the Sexual Assault Center of Nashville.
“The Vagina Monologues” is produced as a part of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play. To date, this movement has raised more than $70 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it. Each year, V-Day focuses on a specific group of women in the world who are resisting violence with courage and vision. This year’s spotlight campaign will highlight the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo. For more information about the national organization, please visit http://www.vday.org.
For more information about the production, please contact Jacqueline Clauss at firstname.lastname@example.org or Megan Culler at email@example.com.
As a color and correction artist in the Division of Public Affairs, Julie Turner Schellhardt makes sure the images showcased in campus publications are always presented in their best light. She will discuss photoshopping and the importance of having self-esteem and inner beauty. Bring a brown bag lunch and your questions!

There are actually several recent events I wish I’d known about in time to attend, including another V-Day event, something on feminism and Afghan women, and IMAGE week events on myths surrounding anorexia and bulimia and body image and the media. Can’t someone over there just read my mind and alert me to these things? 😉
