The film screening is free and there will be free food available for those attending. An expert panelist discussion will follow the film.
“DNA Is Not Destiny” is one of a five-part documentary series that intends to ignite a national conversation that asks: what can be done better to ensure babies and children in the U.S. thrive? “DNA Is Not Destiny” is about epigenetics, which suggest that early environments literally become part of us. More information about The Raising of America series can be found at http://raisingofamerica.org/.
The film is also in recognition of National Public Health Week (April 4-10, 2016). National Public Health Week is a time to highlight public health issues and contributions of public health in improving our nation.
