“Feeding the Fame” - Celebrities Tell Their Real-Life Stories of Eating Disorders and Recovery
Join MusiCares for a discussion with the book’s author, Gary Stromberg

Musicians, actors, models, athletes, and other entertainers are particularly hard hit by eating disorders, primarily because a stunning appearance or performance is part of the job description.
"Feeding The Fame" is a collection of inspiring interviews which tell the stories of 17 celebrities who have suffered yet survived life threatening eating disorders. These authentic personal accounts reveal the most intimate fears and disappointments, as well as the unconventional, fascinating, and effective paths back to a normal healthy body image and eating patterns.

“Problems of Addiction in the Music Industry”
With Mick Jones, Foreigner
Joe Schrank, co-founder of TheFix.com
Gene Bowen, Road Recovery
Moderated by Harold Owens, MusiCares

MusiCares is proud to host a discussion on the unique challenges facing musicians and others who make their living in the music industry.

From the demands of always having to be “on” to the ever present temptations of drugs, sex and alcohol, it’s not surprising that many within the industry struggle with substance abuse and addiction. Perhaps you know someone struggling with addiction, but aren’t sure what can be done to help?

This talk will explore some of these issues along with firsthand experiences of the personal difficulties and successes encountered on the path to recovery.

Space is limited! RSVP online or by calling 212.245.7840.

Presented with support from RBC Capital Markets
