The Honouring Radiance program and site is based on the graduate work of Ann Marie Keating who spent 5 years on a Ph.D. thesis called Dishonouring Radiance at York University.  Her discoveries during this time made her passionate about eating disorder prevention and committed to helping young women develop the self-esteem and internal resources necessary to withstand the external pressures and unrealistic beauty standards inherit in our culture.
