|KQED Education Network Presents a Community Screening of KQED Bay Window, Children and Asthma as Part of the Richmond Community Media Services|
San Francisco, January 23, 2003 -- KQED Education Network (EdNet) and the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts will host a community screening of excerpts of Children and Asthma, part of the award-winning KQED Bay Window television series, on Thursday January 30 from 6-8 p.m. The program, part of the Richmond Community Media Series, will be presented in both English and Spanish, and is free and open to the public. A discussion with local medical experts in asthma will follow the screening.
Children and Asthma presents personal stories from children suffering from the affects of this debilitating illness. Viewers hear from leading physicians and scientists in asthma studies and educators who are working with children and families to lessen the effects of asthma in their homes.
The Richmond Community Media Series, a collaboration between KQED and the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts, seeks to develop an in-depth relationship with the Richmond community through ongoing activities that address local issues. The project will sponsor a series of public screenings and facilitated discussions, focusing on issues of immigration, family loss, race, children’s health and AIDS.
This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required, as space is limited. Please RSVP to (415) 553-2293.
