Food Security: It’s not only about the food - Marnie Schilken
Tue 2/27/2018 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join Marnie Schilken, Chief Impact Officer at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, as she engages us in thinking through the lives of three different individuals and how food secure or insecure they might be. We will think about the drivers that allow a household or individual to be more or less food secure, and brainstorm what can happen if we tweak each scenario here and there. Will people fare better or worse? Marnie will also describe to us the various programs at the Food Bank and share with us why and how the Food Bank keeps in mind the people and agencies it serves as it strives to “feed people in need and mobilize the community to end hunger.”

"Periods Gone Public Pittsburgh" discussion with author Jennifer Weiss-Wolf
Thu 3/1/2018 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

SisterFriend and the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences are proud to welcome the author of Periods Gone Public, Jennifer Weiss-Wolf as she explores why periods have become a prominent, and even bipartisan political cause. From eliminating the “tampon tax,” to enacting new laws that ensure access to affordable, safe products, menstruation is no longer something to whisper about. The woman Bustle dubbed one of the nation’s “badass menstrual activists," Weiss-Wolf will share her firsthand account in the fight for menstrual equity and will challenge the audience to face stigma head-on, and to elevate an agenda that recognizes both the power—and the absolute normalcy—of menstruation.

"How I Live" Documentary and Discussion: Pediatric Cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries
Thu 3/22/2018 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Children living with cancer is a tragedy made worse with insufficient infrastructure, funds, access to treatment, and trained medical professionals. Unfortunately, families caring for children with cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) face this harsh reality, and it contributes to the low survival rate of just 20% for pediatric cancer, a stark contrast to high-income countries’ 80% survival rate. 

Join the Center for Global Health and the Global Health Student Association in viewing the new documentary film, "How I Live," which delves into the unique issues people of LMICs face. After the film, we’ll have a panel discussion with the film’s producers and global health professionals with a reception afterward.
