Come view one of the many extraordinary films from our library.

The Global Perspectives Film Series is one of our many continuing educational activities. Our goal is to provide the TTUHSC and local community with information about global, national, and local health and social issues.

Through the film series, attendees will also gain knowledge about various heritage celebrations, historic events, and current trends in health care. They will also receive insight into the customs, culture, and history of other countries and people.

Free pizza will be provided to the first 30 attendees. This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is necessary.

The Weight of Honor

 

  • Date: Thursday, February 21, 2019
  • Time: 11:30 AM CT
  • Location: ACB 100
  • Flyer

Filmed over five years, The Weight of Honor follows the lives of the caregivers of veterans who have been catastrophically wounded in America’s longest war. Their lives are transformed overnight to 24/7 caregivers tasked with caring for their war-wounded. The film reveals the family dynamic, their relationships before the wounds of war, and now, the uncertainties that lie ahead.

A Q&A will follow the 56 minute screening featuring Stephanie Seldin Howard, director; Col. Dave Lewis, Institute for Peace and Conflict, TTU; and Dr. Sarah Wakefield, Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Services, TTUHSC.

An additional screening of the film will occur at 6:00 pm on February 21. Location to be determined.

The screening of this film is made possible by the generous sponsorship of the TTUHSC Office of Global Health, the TTUHSC Department of Psychiatry, the TTUHSC Veterans Resource Center, the TTU Institute for Peace and Conflict, and the TTU College of Media & Communication.
