HBO's Weight of the Nation Screening
Please join us to view four episodes of HBO's Weight of the Nation and discuss its implications on our community and society.
Three years in the making, this four-part documentary series, features case studies and interviews with leading experts and with individuals and families
struggling with obesity. The series spotlights the facts and myths of this urgent public health issue, showing how obesity affects the health of the nation and cripples the health care system - and what individuals and communities can do.
The screenings will all be from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm, in the Hughes Main Library Conference Rooms A-C on Jan. 10, Jan. 24, Feb. 7 and Feb. 21. Lunch will be available for pre-registrants to purchase at the door.
