Hamilton College to Screen Feeding Frenzy

Hamilton College Days-Massolo Center Living Room

Hamilton College will host a screening of the film "Feeding Frenzy." The event is part of the Health[Care] Programming Film Series sponsored by the Days-Massolo Center, and is free and open to the public. Over the past three decades, obesity rates in the U.S. have more than doubled for children and tripled for adolescents – and a startling 70% of adults are now obese or overweight. The result has been a widening epidemic of obesity-related health problems, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and Type 2 diabetes. While discussions about this spiraling health crisis have tended to focus on the need for more exercise and individual responsibility, "Feeding Frenzy" trains its focus squarely on the responsibility of the processed food industry and the outmoded government policies it benefits from.

Utica College's Nexus Series Presents: Development of a screening tool for overhead collegiate athletes who are at risk of shoulde

Willard Conference Room in DePerno Hall at Utica College

David Schilling, Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy, and Ashraf Elazzazi, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy, will explain how shoulder injuries such as tendon inflammation, shoulder instability, and cartilage tears are common in collegiate overhead athletes. Currently there is no comprehensive, reliable, and valid established screening tool for predicting those at risk of injury in this population. As part of their research, Professors Schilling and Elazzazi are developing a screening tool that aims to identify impairments of overhead athletes that may be associated with increased future risk of injury. This knowledge will allow healthcare practitioners to devise evaluative and therapeutic procedures that may help in the prevention of shoulder injuries among collegiate athletes.

Chemical Heritage Foundation Director to Lecture at Hamilton College

Hamilton College - Red Pit (room 127) in the Kirner-Johnson Building

“Sensing Change: How Art and Science Work to Communicate Environmental Change” by Jody Roberts, director of the Center for Contemporary History and Policy at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) in Philadelphia. Roberts’ work explores the intersections of emerging molecular sciences and public policy and the ways in which tensions brought about between the two get resolved. He received advanced degrees in science and technology studies from Virginia Tech, where he cultivated an interest in the practice of the molecular sciences and the ways in which they are shaped by internal architecture and design (e.g., technologies of the laboratory) and the politics of the broader world (e.g., chemical regulations). Those interests became the basis for the projects that formed CHF’s Environmental History and Policy Program, which explores social, technical, and policy innovations for governing molecules. The lecture is sponsored by the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center.

"Here One Day" Documentary Showing

SUNYIT Student Center

Early one February morning, after a decades-long struggle with Bipolar Disorder, Nina Leichter, a sixty-three year old mother of two, completed suicide by jumping out of a window. Being the wife of a New York State Senator, her death was reported on the radio, in newspapers, and on television. HERE ONE DAY picks up where the mainstream press left off. Shot by the winner of last year’s Excellence in Cinematography Award at The Sundance Film Festival, this un-sensationalized, beautiful film paints a captivating, intimate portrait of those left behind. Told from the point of view of Nina’s daughter, Director Kathy Leichter, and featuring Nina’s husband, son, sister, and grandchildren, HERE ONE DAY follows this family from 2004 to 2008 as they attempt to make sense of what happened and go on with their lives. Watch as the film reveals the universal emotions of guilt, blame, rage, despair, humor and affection that the family experiences. Some family members think they have moved on but haven’t. Some want to move on but can’t. Some, like Nina’s grandchildren, don’t even know the full story. To tell them or not becomes a storyline, as does the role of family secrets, and how people live with loss in very different ways. By film’s end, the family, who goes through struggles, conflicts and resolutions on-screen, is less broken, less traumatized, but still scarred and forever changed. While HERE ONE DAY is about mental illness and suicide, all too common experiences that remain alarmingly taboo and dreadfully need more public discussion, it is also about holding on and letting go, the ever-changing parent/child relationship, and how our emotional experiences, not just our biology, get passed down from one generation to the next. Join the director of this amazing documentary, Kathy Leichter, CFLR, Inc. and the Oneida County Suicide Prevention Coalition as we watch the film and talk with Kathy Leichter herself, in celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month. This is a free event!
