The Environmental Health Strategy Center and Medomak Valley Land Trust will host a screening of “Living Downstream” Thursday, Aug. 1, at 7 p.m. at Village Bakery, 11 Friendship St.

“Living Downstream,” a documentary based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, offers a reminder of the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the health of our air, land and water. The film documents Steingraber’s odyssey across the country as she follows the invisible toxins that affect our health; and works to engage in a dialogue around the environmental factors that contribute to cancer.

After the film, members of the Environmental Health Strategy Center and Medomak Valley Land Trust will lead a discussion about their current work and answer questions posed by the audience. The evening is open to the public, and desserts will be available. All donations go to support work to protect the air, land and water.

The Environmental Health Strategy Center works to prevent harm by getting toxic chemicals out of every day products. Medomak Valley Land Trust has been working for more than 20 years to promote and preserve the natural, recreational and scenic character and traditional land-uses of the Medomak River watershed.
