The Elisa Project & ESTEEM
The Elisa Project is dedicated to fighting against eating disorders through education, support, and advocacy. Named for Elisa McCall, a young woman who struggled with bulimia and depression for over seven years before taking her own life. After her death, Rick and Leslie McCall founded The Elisa Project to provide individuals and their loved ones with education and support surrounding eating disorders and mental health.
ESTEEM is a celebration of positive body image and self-esteem. Girls, women, and men of all ages and sizes, come together to embrace healthy, balanced lifestyles and self-acceptance. By helping to increase awareness about eating disorders and the importance of positive body image. ESTEEM encourages people to love themselves while striving to be healthy.
