Please join Healthy Roanoke Valley (HRV) for a series of two lunchtime film screenings and conversations about health equity on February 8 and March 7. Both programs will take place at the Grandin Theater from 11:30-1:30, and lunch will be provided.
For most of us, when we think of health, we think of visiting the doctor or the dentist. However, our health starts much earlier than a visit to the dentist; it is impacted by our neighborhoods, our homes, our jobs, even whether or not we have reliable transportation. Inequities across class, race, and other divides are directly reflected in the health of our community. In order to build a community where all are empowered to achieve and sustain optimal health, we have to first understand the inequities that exist, and how we can work to support a more just and equitable community. At each of these conversations, we will screen a short film followed by facilitated discussion around these issues.
