ent_film-reel 3:00 PM Documentary- The Connection     Tell a Friend
   

After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, journalist and filmmaker Shannon Harvey travelled the world in search of the missing link in healthcare. From interviewing world leading scientists to meeting people with remarkable stories of recovery from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis, this documentary delves into the link between our mind and body. The film includes an internationally recognized line up of scientists including Dr. Herbert Benson, researchers including Dr. Dean Ornish, writers including Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and renowned medical doctors including Dr. Andrew Weil. The film also features compelling true stories of recovery such as Professor George Jelinek, a Professor of Emergency Medicine who has recovered from multiple sclerosis, and Dr. Ian Gawler who recovered from an aggressive bone cancer against the odds. The Connection is a film that proves we have more influence on our health outcomes than we ever thought possible.

2014; 75 min; NR

After the film, stick around for a Q&A session with Stress Management and Wellness Coach, Health Educator, and Personal Trainer Kelley Brophy!

misc_usflag 10:30 AM Dr. Gary Hylander, PhD - VJ Day     Tell a Friend
   

Dr. Gary Hylander, PhD will once again entertain and enlighten us with American history. Though the Allies celebrated the end of World War II in Europe in May of 1945 (Victory in Europe, or V-E Day), reactions were tempered by awareness of the ongoing conflict in the Pacific.

After Japanese leaders dismissed Truman's demand to accept unconditional surrender or to face "prompt and utter destruction" from the air, Truman ordered that atomic bombs be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and August 9th, 1945.  Saying that the time had come to "bear the unbearable", Emperor Hirohito surrendered thus ending the most destructive war in human history. Although the United States officially commemorated this victory on September 2, by August 15 celebrations were taking place all over the United States. Dr. Hylander takes us back to the days leading up to and following the official end of WWII.

Dr. Gary Hylander, PhD is a scholar and professor who has taught at Stonehill College and Framingham State University and lectured for many cultural and educational forums including the Norton Institute for Continuing Education (NICE).

Program and refreshments sponsored by the Friends of the Norton Public Library.
