About the film: Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? is the award-winning documentary series that sounds the alarm about our socioeconomic and racial inequities in health – and searches for their causes. The film crisscrosses the country, investigating startling findings that suggest there is much more to our health than bad habits, health care, or unlucky genes. The series circles in on a slow killer hidden in plain view: how the social circumstances in which we are born, live and work can get under our skin. For more information, visit unnaturalcauses.org.
Each week will feature 1 or more episodes of the series, followed by facilitated discussion with health scholars and health care practitioners. The episodes are self-contained, so please join us for one, two, or all sessions!
