Unnatural Causes -- the movie -- Premieres in Springfield and Holyoke

June 4, 2008

Unnatural Causes ... is inequality making us sick is a groundbreaking new documentary series exploring how the social conditions in which Americans are born, live and work profoundly affect health and longevity, even more than medical care, behaviors and genes. The film goes beyond popular conceptions linking health to medical care, lifestyles and genes to explore evidence of other more powerful determinants: the social conditions in which we are born, live and work. Watch clips, get the toolkit and discussion guide, and more, here.
