MDHI: Film Screeing, Care | Interdisciplinary Programs

Sep 25, 2017
7:15 PM - 9:15 PM


Jeanne Kassis Office of Interdisciplinary Programs

Film is free and open to the public. Screeing is 7:15 PM, Frank Banko Alehouse CInemas, ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, 101 Founder's Way, Bethlehem. Sponsored by Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative and co-sponsored by Health, Medicine and Society.

Care delves deep into the world of home elder care through the eyes of both paid caregivers and their elderly clients. Through personal stories, Care reveals the deep humanity and poignancy of care work, as well as the challenges faced by elders, their families and their care workers. It also reveals the beginning of a movement to improve how we care-both for the growing number of older adults and for those who make their lives livable. At a moment of great division in our country, Care highlights an issue that affects us all - urban and rural, immigrant and native born, red state and blue. Providing quality care for an aging population will require reimagining how we value and compensate care workers and how we support families who need their services.

Directed by Deirdre Fishel, Film will have a talkback afterward with:

Tonya Morrow, Member Leadership and Action Coordinator, SEIU Health Care PA Judith Lasker, Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Lehigh University.
