The C Word - movie6:30PM – Film begins
8:00PM – Post-film discussion with director Meghan O’Hara, moderated by Dr. Alessandro Papa from the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Newport Hospital
From executive producer Morgan Freeman comes a bold new film that will forever change the way we view cancer. At its heart are powerful twin narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD’s own director, Meghan O’Hara. After braving the journey from diagnosis to wellness, Meghan and David join forces to expose systematic failings in our society, which reinforce the bad habits that predispose us to disease. Together, they lead us on a wild ride of discovery, which reveals crucial hidden scientific evidence, exposes the absurdity of the status quo, and follows a vibrant cast of characters who are changing the game. At its core, the film dares to ask the critical question: if the majority of cancers are preventable … what are we waiting for?

February 2016 Arts Around the Fire

wood-fireTuesday, February 23rd, 2016 from 6:00-8:00pm
Molly Sexton updated us on the HEZ project – the Newport Health Equity Zone – and the Idea Workshop and Envisioning Day held on Feb 6. Envision Newport has surveyed over 500 residents about some of the most pressing issues in our community. Envisioning Day continued to get feedback from the community during a creativity lab open to the public. The Newport Health Equity Zone is about healthy people and places. It’s about working together to make where we live a place that is good for us, and a place that we feel good about.
