Final Film & Discussion Program Sunday!

This Sunday, May 10th, the Russell Library will host the final program in the 2009 Unnatural Causes Film & Discussion Series, with a screening of episode 7, “Not Just a Paycheck.” This thirty minute segment explores the depression, domestic violence, and poor health of residents in a Western Michigan town in the wake of a factory closing. This episode considers the detrimental ripple effect of job loss in this community and at the same time, explores the government policies in other countries which protect and retrain the unemployed.

Helping us to connect these topics to our surrounding community, panelists Dr. Katheryn Davis (School of Social Work, UGA), James Shrum (OneAthens Health Team), and Peter Hossler (Department of Geography, UGA) will engage in an open dialogue with the audience. The program will conclude with a light reception of healthy snacks!

Events in this program series are all FREE and open to the public. For further information or to RSVP for this event, call 706-542-5788 or visit
