UCLA'S FIELDING SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH RESEARCHERS ARE SEEKING SUMMER CAMPUS REPRESENTATIVES FOR VIRTUAL FILM PROJECT
Dr. Jennifer Wagman and Claire Amabile at UCLA's Fielding School of Public Health are seeking summer campus representatives from all 10 UCs to assist in a project that uses film as a violence prevention tool.
They will be hosting one or more vital screenings of At the Heart of Gold, a documentary that features brave testimonials from various female gymnasts who survived the abuse of Larry Nassar. Nassar, an ex-medical doctor, inflicted sexual violence against over 150 women, most of whom were involved in gymnastics. Through interviews with dozens of survivors, as well as coaches, lawyers and journalists, this film exposes an environment in which young women spent their youth competing for victory, juxtaposed against a culture where abuse was hidden, resulting in the institutional betrayal which has impacted these women for their lifetimes.
As a campus representative, you will be asked to assist with the advertisement of this film screening event at your respective campus.
Please contact Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, or to express interest in serving as a campus representative for this project.
