Join Us for a Discussion on Health Disparity March 23

3/14/2016

Join the Office of Equal Opportunity for Dessert & Dialogue, as attendees continue the discussion with part five (of seven), “Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making us Sick?”

This session explores that increasingly, recent southeast Asian immigrants, along with Latinos, are moving into long-neglected African-American urban neighborhoods, and now their health is being eroded as a result. What policies and investment decisions create living environments that harm or enhance the health of residents? What actions can make a difference?

The session is Wednesday, March 23 at the Thomas Center, which is located at 302 NE Sixth Ave. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., and the film starts at 6 p.m. The discussion will immediately follow, with Dr. Nancy Hardt serving as the facilitator.

The Dessert & Dialogue series is free and open to the public.

RSVPs are appreciated. You may RSVP via email at oeo-events@cityofgainesville.org or by calling 352-393-8494.
