Multnomah County Health Department Health Equity Initiative
Community Screening and Dialogue
Saturday, April 19, 12 noon - 2 p.m.
New Columbia Education Center
4625 N Trenton St., Portland OR 97203
Starting in March, Multnomah County will be one of several communities across the country to feature the documentary Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick in a series of public screenings. Unnatural Causes, a seven-part documentary, is shaking up our understanding of what really makes us healthy or sick. We invite you to join us in dialogues with community members, community-based organizations, civic and business leaders, and local elected officials, to discuss the root causes of health inequities as well as long-term solutions. For more information about the Health Equity Initiative, visit http://www.mchealth.org/healthequity.
Each screening will focus on a particular topic and feature a different section of the series, and refreshments will be served at all events. This dialogue will discuss:
Health is more than health care. Where we live, work and play impacts health. The food we eat and the stress we endure contribute to our health. How can investments in education and neighborhoods improve the health of our whole community? Find out how.
