Discuss social media and body image at 'Seeing You' event

With the rise of social media, a body image conference happening later this week hopes to help the community divulge into concerns and unpack negative perceptions.

"Seeing You" is a powerful event for those who are interested in learning and discussing the effects of social media and television on body image perceptions.

The conference is being put on by WZZM 13 and WCSG to begin the conversation and offer help to parents, friends and anyone dealing with body image issues -- or knows someone who is.
