Epiphany Episcopal Church of Oak Hill, Va., in partnership with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and in recognition of the 27th Week), Feb. 23 – March 1, is hosting a free seminar to raise awareness about body image and bring national and local attention to the severity of eating disorders.
