In today’s episode I speak with Sonia Kumar. Sonia is the cofounder and CEO of Body Brave and is also a national patient advocate with the Canadian Medical Association Patient Voice Committee. After recovering from a devastating eating disorder that nearly took her life, Sonia co-founded Body Brave (in 2017) in order to provide accessible support options for those struggling with eating disorders and their families. You can find Body Brave online at bodybrave.ca and on Instagram @bodybravecanada.
In this episode, Sonia also discusses the upcoming Body Peace Conference, a first-of-its kind eating disorders and body image virtual conference that offers accredited training for healthcare professionals as well as practical, empowering education for caregivers and those living with eating disorders. This year, the conference is being held from November 18-20, 2020.
For more information on the Body Peace Conference, or to register for the conference, you can visit their website at https://bodypeaceconference.com/.
