Unnatural Causes is an acclaimed documentary series broadcast by PBS that addresses the root causes of our alarming socio-economic and racial inequities in health. The series uncovers startling new findings which suggest there is much more to our health than bad habits or unlucky genes. The social circumstances in which we are born into, live, and work in can actually disrupt our physiology as much as sickness and disease.

After the screening, participate in a guided conversation on how these topics are related to our community and discuss concrete actions items to help improve community health.

Unnatural Causes:In Sickness and In Wealth

What are the connections between healthy bodies, healthy bank accounts and skin color? This documentary travels to Louisville, Kentucky and follows the lives of a CEO, a lab supervisor, a janitor and an unemployed mother to illustrate how class shapes opportunities for good health.

This documentary explores why patterns of health and illness reflect underlying patterns of class and racial inequities.

“Those on the bottom are faced with more stressors – unpaid bills, jobs that don’t pay enough, unsafe living conditions, exposure to environmental hazards, lack of control over work and schedule, worries over children – and the fewest resources available to help them cope.”
