Growing a Healthy Community: Film Screening & Conversation

Plan to join AHA and Town of Cary Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources  for Growing a Healthy Community:  A Film Screening & Conversation About Your Health and Your Community, on April 30, 6:30-8:30 pm at the Cary Arts Center. We’ll screen a portion of The Weight of the Nation film series and host a conversation with several experts.

 The film, prepared the Centers for Disease Control, addresses the obesity crisis in our nation, highlights the impact of food marketing to children and sugar-sweetened beverages, and showcases some very positive changes underway in Nashville, Tennessee, to improve the health of residents in their community.

 Carrie Dow-Smith, M.D., of WakeMed Faculty Pediatrics, sees children every  day in her practice who are part of the overweight and obesity epidemic here in Wake County.  Rich Bell of Active Living by Design has 20 years of wide-ranging experience working with nonprofit organizations, collaboratives, and coalitions in the fields of land use and transportation, public health, urban ecology and agriculture,  affordable housing, community development, and community-based education. They and others will lead a conversation after the film.

 The event will be free, and but space is limited. Reserve  your ticket (one per person) here.The event is part of Cary’s Fit Cary Month activities for April.
