SC4 hosts acclaimed documentary

SC4 is hosting a free documentary screening of the series, “Unnatural Causes: is Inequality Making Us Sick?”

The SC4 Wellness Committee and St. Clair Health Department sponsored screenings will be held in the Fine Arts Theatre Wednesday, Feb. 8 and Feb. 29, from 6:30-8:00pm.

The PBS series examines America’s racial and socioeconomic irresponsible malpractice in healthcare by examining our social circumstances which we live and how it affects our health, rather than blaming it on bad genes, poor diets and healthcare.

The first screening, “When the Bough Breaks” asks the question, can racism bury itself inside us like a sand crab in the sand and be affecting the human birth processes and eventually, their outcomes?

The last screening “Not Just a Paycheck” examines the reasons unemployment is devastating specific places, like Michigan, versus unemployment in places such as Sweden, where it’s not even causing a slight disturbance in their economic status.

In addition to the viewing, panel discussions of the documentary will be held following the showings with local experts.
