Breast Cancer Event / Q & A Session

Franciscan St. Francis is hosting a breast cancer educational event in Columbus. The main activity at the event is the free showing of the movie “Decoding Annie Parker.” The movie tells the story of 3-time cancer survivor Annie Parker and the almost discovery of a cure for cancer. And how the BRCA gene mutation was discovered, which places women at increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

In addition to the movie, Dr. Erika Rager, Dr. Juliana Meyer and Morgan Dally, genetic counselor, will be at the event. The team will provide a short presentation on breast cancer and role of family history and genetics. And, they will lead the attendees in completing an individual risk assessment for breast and ovarian cancer. They will also lead a Q&A session after the movie. Any woman with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer who is concerned about her personal risk or, any women simply interested in learning more about breast health are invited to attend.

 

The event is free; however, seating is limited so registration is required. Registration will be handled by our call center. The registration number is (877) 888-1777. The movie is Rated R, so only those 18 years of age and older can attend. Free refreshments will be provided. Participants will have the opportunity to complete a high risk assessment to determine if they are at increased risk for breast or ovarian cancer. We can use the name of the movie, actors, etc. in promoting the event.

The House I Live In

The End-Mass-Incarceration Group from UUCCI will host a special screening of the thought-provoking documentary, The House I Live In at Bartholomew County Public Library Red Room on Saturday, February 7, 1:00 pm.

Immediately following the screening, the group will host a discussion of the film.

Since the 1970s the war on drugs has accounted for 45 million arrests and has cost more than $1 trillion. As a result, the United States has become the world’s largest jailer, and the high volume of drug arrests have destroyed low-income communities, creating a vicious cycle that must be stopped. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Eugene Jarecki, The House I Live In offers a poignant look inside US drug policy and its far reaching impact. Executive Producers include Danny Glover, John Legend, Russell Simmons, and Brad Pitt. The film won the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
