LRGHealthcare and the Greater Franklin HEAL Coalition Host Free "Weight of the Nation" Screening tonight

FRANKLIN — The Greater Franklin HEAL Coalition and LRGHealthcare are hosting a free public screening of the "Challenges" segment of HBO's award-winning Weight of the Nation documentary series.

This documentary powerfully drives home how public policies and our developed environment have contributed to escalating obesity rates. This event is part of the Healthy New Hampshire Foundation's year-long initiative designed to focus public attention on the obesity epidemic, by not only raising public understanding about this crisis, but increasing awareness about what we are doing in the Greater Franklin Area to improve the health of our families and children.

The public is invited to attend on Wednesday, October 16,  at the Bessie Rowell Community Center, 12 Rowell Drive, Franklin from 5-7:30 p.m.  for a complimentary farm-to-table buffet dinner followed by the film screening and community discussion. RSVP is necessary. Call 934-2060 ext. 8369 for more information or to RSVP.
