Would you like to help advance research on body image healing? I’m co-investigator of a new study with Dr. Jennifer Webb Director of the Integrative Positive Psychology Research Lab in Mindfulness, Body Acceptance, Culture & Health (MIND-BATCH) at UNC Charlotte. We’re looking for Body Kindness readers living in the U.S. to participate in a survey.
If you’re a woman who is either currently pregnant OR with at least one child under 5 and you are reading or have recently read Body Kindness, we would love to hear from you. Please help us spread the word about research study by sharing the link with anyone you know who may qualify.

About the Lab
The Integrative Positive Psychology Research Lab in Mindfulness, Body Acceptance, Culture & Health (MIND-BATCH) at UNC Charlotte studies socio-cultural risk and protective factors (e.g., positive body image, ethnic identity, marginalization stress, weight stigma) that may contribute to and/or mitigate ethnic minority and gender disparities in cardiometabolic health in women with a particular emphasis on the developmental transitions of college, pregnancy, and the postpartum period. The lab also has a strong interest in researching the application of integrative mind-body approaches (including the practices of yoga, mindful and intuitive eating, and self-compassion) and Health at Every Size® principles towards optimizing a more holistic experience of health and well-being in culturally-diverse groups.
