    Summer Movie Night Series:

    University of Illinois Extension presents a summer movie series about tough family topics. Join us from 6–7:30 p.m. in our auditorium (801 N. Country Fair Dr.) for a movie, popcorn, and discussion. These events are open to the public, so everyone is encouraged and welcome to attend.

    1.5 CEUs for allied health professionals are available for each program through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois at an additional cost of $15/program.

    Family Movie Night: Monster in the Mind: The Convenient Un-truth about Alzheimer's

    We will be showing this film in honor of Brain Awareness Month. At age 85, Jean Carper, a leading authority on health and nutrition, has directed and produced her first documentary film. The official selection of many international film festivals, it has received rave reviews from top opinion makers, researchers, and Alzheimer’s publications. Following the movie, there will be time for Q&A with Elizabeth Hagemann, Education and Outreach Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter, and Chelsey Byers Gerstenecker, Family Life Educator from University of Illinois Extension.

    Family Movie Night: The Heroin Project

    Join us in watching a documentary that raises awareness of the heroin problem in and around Madison County as well as in southern Illinois. Beyond the monetary cost of increased law-enforcement and of efforts and goods stolen from businesses, the negative effects of heroin are more accurately measured in the ever-growing number of young lives lost. The goal of the project is awareness and action toward a solution to the heroin problem. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A discussion panel with law enforcement and health experts.
