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.

Our list of Fall 2023 films to be featured is available here
