NNLM webinar takeaway - City Health Dashboard

Gotta love the free trainings from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine!

My favorite takeaway from the Health Statistics session today = City Health Dashboard
  • Goal "to provide city leaders with an array of regularly refreshed data to support health-related decision-making"
  • 37 health indicators for the 500 largest U.S. cities
  • Includes Greensboro

Some indicators, like Park Access, have demographic details. Scroll down the page to look for demographic.

Behold the Earth - sustainability film screening tonight, Thurs 2/28/2019

Message from Sarah Dorsey about a Sustainability Film and Discussion event this evening  -

We will be screening Behold The Earth at 6:30 this Thursday, February 28 in the Sullivan Science Building, Room 101.

About the film:

Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring invigorated the U.S. environmental movement in the 1960s, inspiring rising young scientists like Pulitzer Prize winner E.O. Wilson, Cal DeWitt, and Theo Colborn. Many of these scientists were also raised as evangelicals, part of America’s most influential faith community of the last 75 years. Today, a new generation of scientists and evangelicals are coming of age—people like Katharine Hayhoe, Ben Lowe, and Corina Newsome. Can these emerging leaders reduce the human degradations of our earth? Can they revive the reach and relevance of America’s evangelical and environmental movements? Film director and conservationist David Conover began this film 12 years ago as an inquiry into America’s divorce from the outdoors. Four time Grammy-award winning musician Dirk Powell leads arrangements of traditional American tunes and hymns, with Rhiannon Giddens and Tim Eriksen, and Dirk’s daughters Sophie and Amelia.

Leading our post screening discussion will be Rev. Audra Abt, Missionary Vicar, Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit (and) North Greensboro Mission Developer.
