Maggie Peterson is the founder of the Central Illinois Project HEAL Chapter. Maggie is a Speech and Hearing Science major and wishes to use her schooling to become a Speech Therapist to fulfill her calling to “give others their voices back”. As a survivor of an eating disorder herself, Maggie wishes to end the stigma against eating disorders, raise awareness about the severity of the illness, and fight for those still entrenched in the depths of this crippling disease. As a chapter, we are committed to fundraising to help send people to treatment, raising awareness and hopefully understanding about eating disorders in the community, promoting body positivity and self-love, and being a close-knit group who can encourage and uplift one another. We are so excited to be a chapter of such a beautiful organization!
