Douglas Anderson School of Art to Create Documentary About Body Image

Jill McCann, a registered dietician with Wekiva Springs Center, was recently selected to participate in a documentary about body image.  The project is being conducted by a film student from Douglas Anderson School of Art in Jacksonville.

The film student selected McCann, along with a local therapist and a former America’s Top Model participant, to be interviewed about the body image issues that teens and young women deal with on a daily basis. 

“It was a great experience to participate in the documentary and give back to the community,” said McCann, who is also a licensed nutritionist.  “I work with a lot of teenagers who suffer from these problems, and as a former dancer, I understand the challenges they are going through.”

The documentary will feature the testimonies of people who have suffered from eating disorders and body image issues.  The goal is to reveal the negative effects the media and society have on teens and young women.

In addition to working at Wekiva Springs, a Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. (PSI) facility, McCann has a private practice located in Jacksonville Beach, where she focuses on eating disorders and sports nutrition.  She also teaches nutrition classes at the University of North Florida.
