Resilience Film Screening

Wednesday, November 16, 2016
6:00pm – 8:00pm

Storrs Campus
Student Union Theater

Join us for a free screening of the documentary film "Resilience: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope", a powerful documentary revealing the most important public health research findings of a generation.

Extreme stress endured in childhood — including loss of a parent, abuse, and neglect — is now understood to be among the leading causes of everything from cancer and heart disease to substance abuse and depression.

Panelists will include James Redford, Director; Alice Forrester, Chief Executive Officer of the Clifford Beers Clinic in New Haven, Conn.; and Paul Diego Holzer, Eexecutive Director of Achieve Hartford! in Hartford, Conn.
