University of Michigan Students for Choice Screening of Trapped

  • Rackham Graduate School Amphitheatre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The University of Michigan Students for Choice will be screening the movie, Trapped. U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open. Since 2010, 288 TRAP (Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) laws have been passed by conservative state legislatures. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary measures, clinics have taken their fight to the courts. As the U.S. Supreme Court decides in 2016 whether individual states may essentially outlaw abortion (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt), Trapped follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front lines of a battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.

Flint and Lead: The Water/Public Health Connection

Susan Buchanan, MD, MPH, Stephen J. Randtke, PhD, PE, Ella Greene-Moton, and Melissa Essex Elliott

Recent reports of elevated blood lead levels in children in Flint, Michigan, have brought national attention to the role of drinking water in lead exposure. Important questions are being raised about changes in drinking water chemistry, what can be done to control lead exposure through drinking water, and how local water utilities and the public health community can work together. Join APHA and the American Water Works Association for an interactive discussion about the current state of science related to the health risks posed by lead and the value of engaging the water systems sector.

Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

  • UMHS Ford Auditorium (University Hospital Floor 2) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Sam Quinones is a Los Angeles-based freelance journalist and author of three books of narrative nonfiction. His latest book is Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic (Bloomsbury, 2015), for which he traveled across the United States.

At this event, Quinones will discuss his experiences researching America’s opiate epidemic. His book, Dreamland, recounts twin stories of drug marketing in the 21st Century: A pharmaceutical corporation flogs its legal new opiate prescription painkiller as nonaddictive. Meanwhile, immigrants from a small town in Nayarit, Mexico, devise a method for retailing black-tar heroin like pizza in the U.S., and take that system nationwide, riding a wave of addiction to prescription pills from coast to coast. The collision of those two forces has led to America’s deadliest drug scourge in modern times.

A National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, Dreamland was also selected as one of the best books of 2015 by Amazon.com, Slate.com, the Daily Beast, Buzzfeed, Seattle Times, Boston Globe, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Entertainment Weekly, Wall Street Journal, and Bloomberg Business.
