‘Chasing the Dream’ screening & panel discussion Nov. 19 at CPP High School
Oct. 29, 2019:
CORNING – Community members are invited to learn more about adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, and trauma-informed care at a free screening of WSKG’s “Chasing the Dream” followed by a panel discussion Nov. 19 at Corning-Painted Post High School auditorium.
“Chasing the Dream” is a poverty awareness campaign centered on the Southern Tier that examines the root causes of local poverty and the challenges and successes of poverty-reduction efforts. This episode explores how trauma and abuse suffered in childhood has been scientifically demonstrated to affect an adult’s health and well-being, and how area agencies are using this information to create better outcomes for the populations they serve.
The screening will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium followed by a panel discussion from 6 to 7 p.m. featuring:
Mike Ginalski, Superintendent, Corning-Painted Post Area School District;
Barbara Hubbell, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives, United Way of the Southern Tier;
Laura Rossman, CEO, Pro Action of Steuben and Yates, Inc.;
Darlene Smith, Director, Steuben County Public Health.
Natasha Thompson, host of “Chasing the Dream” and president and CEO of Food Bank of the Southern Tier, will serve as moderator.
This event is made possible with the support of: Corning Incorporated Foundation; Corning-Painted Post Area School District; Food Bank of the Southern Tier; Pro Action of Steuben and Yates, Inc.; Steuben County Public Health; United Way of the Southern Tier, and WSKG.
Registration for this free event is requested through Eventbrite.
