Unnatural Causes: In Sickness & In Wealth

This 58-minute documentary discusses the connections between healthy bodies, healthy bank accounts & skin color. People of color face an added health burden. Unnatural Causes sounds the alarm about the glaring socio-economic and racial inequities in health. The social conditions in which we live profoundly affect our well-being and longevity.

Karyn L. Pomerantz, MLS, MPH, a teacher at the GWU School of Public Health & Health Services, will facilitate a Q&A period about what we can do to promote a healthier environment for all. This film is planned by the Prince George’s County Peace & Justice Coalition.
