Catherine and Francis Participate in the Science Museum of Virginia's Lunch Break Science to talk Eating Disorder Recovery
This episode of the Navigating Recovery Podcast is a little different as co-hosts Catherine and Francis participated in the Science Museum of Virginia’s Lunch Break Science, a series of talks and lectures on varying topics for people to listen, learn, and connect. This is the recording of Catherine and Francis’s presentation. In this talk, Francis and Catherine debunked common myths about eating disorders; interviewed each other about their own eating disorders and how they found recovery in an effort to provide insight into that experience; revealed what they’ve learned about eating disorder recovery from a year of conversations on their podcast with clinicians and recovery/life coaches as well as individuals in recovery; shared insights into how to help a loved one who is struggling; and answered questions from the audience.
The museum is featuring the Mental Health: Mind Matter touring exhibition that uses immersive experiences and multimedia activities to raise awareness about mental illness. Catherine and Francis were so grateful for the opportunity to participate and share their stories.
