Documentaries explore issues around community design, aging and health

April 03, 2014 - 2:51 PM

KELOWNA - On Thursday, April 10 a free public screening of two documentaries will examine the implications of community design from different points of view.

I'd Rather Stay explores the joys and challenges of growing older in one’s own home and neighbourhood, and the importance of developing age friendly communities. Researchers will be present to discuss the film.   

Designing Healthy Communities, Episode 1: Retrofitting Suburbia is the first episode of a four part public television series called ‘Designing Healthy Communities’. The multi-media project provides a provocative and challenging view of the impact the built environment has on how we live, where we live and what we must change to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities.

Thursday, April 10
7 – 9:30 p.m.
Manteo Resort – Ballroom
3762 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna

This film screening is free and open to the public. The evening is part of the Rural Health Services Research Conference, a two-day event in Kelowna bringing together health professionals, academics, engineers, municipalities and others to examine leading research in rural health services.
