The Great Disconnect


About This Event

Join us for a screening of the documentary The Great Disconnect. We are living in a time that has been described as the age of loneliness. Despite Western advances in technology, living conditions, education and healthcare we—as a society—are isolating ourselves from one another, and because of this, facing a health crisis that affects all ages, genders, races and cultures. But how have we become so disconnected? And what can we do to change the status quo and fulfill our potential for health and well-being? Follow wellness expert Tamer Soliman as he journeys through North American cities to meet with local citizens, community activists, and leading authorities on social, economic, and urban planning to discover the true factors that have profound and lasting impacts, not only on our health, but the health of the communities in which we live. This timely documentary invites us to reflect on the relationships we have with those around us and raises the question: is it possible to overcome our modern culture of disconnectedness and rediscover how truly essential we are to one other? Documentary to be followed by a discussion. This is not a hybrid event—however, individuals can register to watch the documentary online followed by an online discussion or attend in person. Free and open to the public, but seating is limited and RSVP is required (RSVP also required for the online participation link).
