Celebrate Food Day with The Weight of the Nation screening TODAY

As part of a campus-wide celebration of Food Day, a day designated by a D.C. group for celebrating sustainable, healthy food, the School of Education, Teaching, and Health will screen portions of the HBO documentary series The Weight of the Nation in Ward 2 today at 2 PM. The screening will be followed by a "multidisciplinary faculty panel discussion."

The documentary covers the consequences of the nationwide obesity epidemic, its effects on children, and the ways to change it. This is an entertaining way to bring attention to the important issues that Food Day addresses.

The two-hour screening will only cover a portion of The Weight of the Nation; the full program lasts closer to five hours. If you want to view the rest of the series, you can view it at Media Services (HU DVD 10386).
