Dartmouth — FILM NIGHT: Screening and discussion of obesity epidemic documentary “Fed Up”
April 4, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join us for free refreshments and a screening of the obesity documentary “Fed Up.” Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and journalist Katie Couric examine America’s obesity epidemic and question the role of both the industry and government regulators in contributing to sickness. This BRI event is part of Dartmouth’s Public Health week celebration.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: In conjunction with the week-long series of events put on by the student-led committee that promotes National Public Health Awareness week on campus, our BRI-Dartmouth chapter held a screening of the film “Fed Up” for 16 students.”Fed Up” is a recent documentary about the obesity epidemic. It is a very good film that discusses how the food industry has captured the regulatory power and influence of the government. it does not come across as “free market propaganda” to the average viewer, but there is an unmistakable message that government involvement in these matters can make things worse.
