Unfortunately the screening event has been canceled out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health of our community. We hope to reschedule for a later date. To stay in the loop on this event and more, subscribe to CCTS News.
Join us as we reflect on the events of the deadly 1995 Chicago heat wave, the lessons learned, and the ongoing efforts to address health inequities.
Panelists and audience members will have an opportunity to discuss how the social determinants of health – our local contexts where we live, grow, work, and play – impacted the intensity and aftermath of the heat wave, and how our communities can address health inequities in Chicago moving forward.
COOKED: Survival by Zip Code is Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand's searing investigation into the politics of “disaster” – by way of the deadly 1995 Chicago heat wave, in which 739 residents perished (mostly Black and living in the city’s poorest neighborhoods).
