Lecture and a Movie: Violence and Public Health
Main Street Movies 5, April 4, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The UD Partnership for Healthy Communities will host “Lecture and a Movie: Violence and Public Health” at Main Street Movies 5 in Newark. With a focus on violence as a public health issue, the event will begin with a showing of A Family Affair, a film that highlights how trauma unfolds and can impact the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. “Trauma isn’t something that is ‘out there’ happening to people we don’t know. It has an address and lives in our homes and communities. The community members who collaborated on this project did so to start a conversation and make it relatable so we all see the signs, get resources to our friends and family, and feel compelled to prevent it from happening in the first place” explains Shirelle “Diamond” Hogans, writer and director of the film. Read more about the event on UDaily. This event is open to the Public. Register Now!
