"Michael’s visit included not only an all-school address but meetings with three smaller groups. The breadth and content of his knowledge was provocative, and to many students, vital. Most effective  was the profound authority of his personal journey. He provided facts about addiction in general and food addiction in particular, solid knowledge about available support for those who struggle with food, and compelling personal reflections." ~ Robert H. Thompson
