Event Description: 

Using Public Health to Bend the Arc is a free community outreach event that aims to increase public health education in Waltham, especially for Waltham students and people of color. The event is open to the public (registration is required: bit.ly/bendingthearcwaltham)!

The event will begin with food, followed by one of the only screenings in the Boston area of Bending the Arc, a documentary about how "three young people barely out of their teens began a public health revolution by treating patients who had been abandoned by the health establishment. Their fight for universal health equity became a global battle in the highest halls of power for the right to health for all.”

The screening will be followed by a public health professionals Q&A session, which will help debrief the movie and will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions about what public health is.

Finally, there will be an opportunity for attendees to meet and speak with public health professionals, as well as Brandeis students studying public health.

It is sure to be a fun, inspiring, and eventful night!  

The first 25 registrants get a free copy of Mountains Beyond Mountains (a book about the three inspirational people that the story of Bending the Arc surrounds) by Tracy Kidder!
