The relay is coordinated by the class of 2013, with junior Holly Irvin as the chair.

“Body image is not something that is talked about openly. We wanted to create a safe space for students to talk about these issues,” said junior Tatiana Radonsky, who coordinated the event and conducted research with seniors Jessica Ahern and Katelyn Gormley, and juniors Caitlyn Pare and Bailey Carr.

There were originally 10 people working on the project, but those five women wanted to take their Participatory Action Research (PAR) project further. More…
