The Department of Public Health Sciences is co-hosting a series of film fests for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read: Wichita alongside the Wichita Public Library and Tallgrass Film Association. The next event is a screening of the movie, “Robot & Frank” at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 23 in the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St. N.
Food and popcorn sponsors are Alzheimer’s Association-Central & Western Kansas Chapter and KUSM-Wichita Family and Community Medicine. After the screening, join a discussion of the film at The Monarch at 579 W. Douglas Ave. with a guest moderator. Food and beverage discounts are offered with a ticket stub.
Each week will feature a new film that, like “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” by Roz Chast, the book chosen for this year’s NEA Big Read: Wichita, explores caregiving and the universal challenges experienced as one cares for someone with a chronic illness, injury, medical trauma or nearing end of life.
