Grand Rounds Cycle Series: Homelessness & Menstruation Short Film Screening & Panel Discussion

Tuesday 11/14 6:00PM - 7:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)
Cycle Series is a short documentary film series created by BHCS PhD student Sara Baumann, which explores an array of menstrual experiences from a public health perspective. The goal of the series is not only to better understand menstruation by listening to individual narratives, but also to have a format that is easy to share and encourages discourse about experiences that are frequently overlooked. Experiences of menstruation are nuanced and complex. These films aim to initiate discussions about how different individuals and communities cope with menstruation, and how we can consider their unique needs in future health research, interventions, and policies.
