Seattle, WA, April 04, 2010 --( Scarlett Ramey is passionate about educating the public on raising their awareness of how the media affects their perception of beauty. Ramey is a registered dietician and specializes in eating disorders, diabetes management, and weight management. In her work, Ramey sees the affects of media on her patients’ perception of beauty.

“I consider Ramey Nutrition the pivotal element in my recovery from an eating disorder that I struggled against for 5 years. Though past health care professionals helped me in small, useful ways, Scarlett's practice has fueled me through a life-shaking, invigorating process of recovery that I never believed possible.” LB - Seattle

Following her passions, Ramey has partnered with Courtney McGonegle for a showing of the documentary “America the Beautiful”, followed by a discussion lead by Ramey on how media shapes our perceptions of beauty and how it affects us. The event will be held Wednesday, April 7, 2010 from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm in the University of Washington’s Electrical Engineering Building Room 105.

It’s a fact that fashion models are thinner than 98% of all women. Don’t let the media shape your perception of beauty. Let’s redefine “beauty” and make this an empowering and enlightening night for men and women in the University of Washington community.

“Media is not the cause of eating disorders, however it acts like fuel to a small spark of what might already be a causative issue. By using emotional intelligence, we increase our power over emotions the media wants us to feel. Then, and only then, can we look at media for what it is…”
