Get to know us ::

We seek to empower,
to strengthen, 
and to grow individuals.

We are an NPO who's focus is to encourage recovery of eating disorders and body image issues by way of promoting of healthy lifestyles and mindset changes.

Direct impact can be seen through peer-to-peer mentorship, self-enrichment workshops and programs, educational presentations and local partnerships.

Despite the large scale effect eating disorders have on the American population, most people do not understand what an eating disorder is or the long lasting psychological and physiological impact they have.  With the rise of social media, comes unrealistic expectations of beauty, creating a generation of individuals who are more insecure than ever.  This terrifies us.  We want to create a resilient youth with a healthy positive perception of their body.  We at FAN believe that by emphasizing self-worth we can start preventing the ongoing rise of eating disorders, body dysmorphic disease, and all negative coping mechanisms.
