Three years in the making, THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION is a four-part documentary series, featuring the case studies and interviews with leading experts and with individuals and families struggling with obesity.  The series spotlights the facts and myths of this urgent public health issue, showing how obesity affects the health of the nation and cripples the health care system - and what individuals and communities can do.

During the months of July and February, we will be screening each of the 4 episodes of The Weight of the Nation.  Every other week, we will present a new episode, open to anyone who would like to attend. The dates for each episode are:


January 10 - "Choices"

January 24 - "Children"

February 7 - "Consequences"

February 21 - "Challenges"


Please join us as we present this challenging, inspiring and action-oriented documentary to the Greenville Community.
