Project Mar;a’s mission is to increase education about and advocacy for treatment of eating disorders in Rock County, Wisconsin, and the US via dissemination of information. At this point, we have begun working with local schools to ensure that students have access to resources in their health classes, guidance/counseling offices, and on district websites. We also aim to increase treatment services in the area.
This organization was named after Maria Dorn, a beautiful soul who loved art, reading, and was passionate about civil rights and helping those with eating disorders. She fought anorexia nervosa for 3 years and lost her battle in December of 2015. Although she is gone, her memory remains, inspiring us to serve others.
