March is Women's History Month!

This month provides the opportunity to recognize and acknowledge the significant contributions of women throughout history that have often been overlooked or downplayed. It is a time to raise awareness about the role of women in history and their achievements, which can serve as inspiration for current and future generations of women. It’s important that we take the time to reflect on and celebrate the contributions of women to our world and to continue to work towards a more equitable and inclusive future.

We lit the Bicentennial Tower for EDAW!

On February 27th, 2023 our staff and members of our community gathered at Dobbins Landing to witness the Bicentennial Tower light up in blue and green lights to commemorate National Eating Disorders Awareness Week for the very first time. We are featured on the National Eating Disorders Association’s (NEDA) website for organizing the lighting of the tower and as official collaborators for EDAW, and have also been featured by both Erie News Now and!

We are excited to be a part of this movement to spread awareness and to provide a beacon of light that represents hope, connection, and support for those in our community who are affected by eating disorders.

Check out NEDA’s website to learn more about EDAW:

Prevention Programming is in High Demand

Our evidence-based prevention programs are in high demand! Engaging in meaningful discussions with students, teachers, administrators, parents and organizations about positive body image, stress management, and recognizing the signs, symptoms and treatment options for eating disorders can be life affirming and, potentially, life saving.


This is only the beginning of our prevention programming, but we are off to an amazing start! Here are some schools and universities we have visited this year to present a variety of prevention programs:

  • McDowell High School 

  • Fairview Middle School

  • Harbor Creek Junior High

  • Gannon University

We were awarded a grant from the Aerie Real Foundation!

We were awarded a $10,000 grant for our Eat Breathe Thrive program from the Aerie Real Foundation!

The Aerie Real Change Community Grant works to build confidence in women, foster an inclusive community, and protect our planet.

The Eat Breathe Thrive program combines yoga, psychoeducation, and community support to help people eat mindfully, build resilience, and feel better in their bodies. It is an educational course that is designed to prevent eating disorders before they start.

The check presentation was held at the Millcreek Mall with Kelly White the Eat Breathe Thrive facilitator (left), Amy Resurreccion the Store Manager (left center), Ali D'Alboro the Merchandise Team Leader (right center), and Mary Machuga the Executive Director of White Pine Center for Healing (right).
