• Aubrey's Song Foundation has scheduled a volunteer training on Aug. 20 at the Logsdon Community Center, 2400 Friendship Drive. They are still seeking additional volunteers who are willing to speak to students a few times during the school year in one or more of 10 counties about positive body image and eating disorders.

School family resource and youth resource coordinators from Kentucky's Region 2 and other community volunteers are invited to learn the presentation itself, how to answer questions from students and to better understand the basics of eating disorders so they are prepared and informed. Retirees from the nursing or medical field, educational system (teachers, guidance counselors) and anyone passionate about helping educate and prevent body bullying and body shaming that lead to eating disorders is encouraged to participate on Aubrey's Song's Volunteer Task Force. To learn more the educational program and/or the volunteer training, contact Carolyn Ferber, executive director, at 270-852-6514.
