Join Us for a Discussion on Health Disparity April 25

4/14/2016
Join the Office of Equal Opportunity for Dessert & Dialogue, as attendees continue the discussion with part six (of seven), “Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making us Sick?”

This session explores the Marshall Islands, where local populations have been displaced from their traditional way of life by the presence of the American military and globalization. Now they must contend with the worst of the “developing” and industrialized worlds: infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis, due to crowded living conditions and extreme poverty and chronic disease stemming, in part, from the stress of dislocation and loss. 

The session is Monday, April 25 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, but not required. You may RSVP via email at oeo-events@cityofgainesville.org or by calling 352-334-5051.
