Salam Neighbor Screening: Hello Neighbor Documentary Film Series


Global Studies Center on behalf of The Ridgeway Center and Hello Neighbor. In an effort to better understand refugee life, [the filmmakers] spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, [they] were able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis. [Their] experience uncovered overwhelming trauma but also the untapped potential our uprooted neighbors posses. With the right programs we can support healing, ease the burden on host countries and even empower the disenfranchised by unleashing people’s creativity.

Location TBD

Grand Rounds "How I Live" Documentary and Discussion: Pediatric Cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

Children living with cancer is a tragedy made worse with insufficient infrastructure, funds, access to treatment, and trained medical professionals. Unfortunately, families caring for children with cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) face this harsh reality, and it contributes to the low survival rate of just 20% for pediatric cancer, a stark contrast to high-income countries’ 80% survival rate. 

Join the Center for Global Health and the Global Health Student Association in viewing the new documentary film, "How I Live," which delves into the unique issues people of LMICs face. After the film, we’ll have a panel discussion with the film’s producers and global health professionals with a reception afterward.
