The San Francisco Chapter of the Links invites you to attend the NorcalMLK Foundation 2018 Health Festival and Liberation Film Festival on January 15, 2018 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The SF Links, led by our Health and Human Services Facet, will bring “Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope” to MLKDAY 2018 with a FREE screening at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. This is an encore screening of the film that we presented in April 2017 at the Bayview Opera House to (over 300) Bayview residents, Healthcare providers and Community Advocates.

Resilience is the latest film from documentary director-producer James Redford and producer-writer-director Karen Pritzker. It features the work of Dr. Nadine Burke Harris – Founder and CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness and Founding Physician of the Bayview Child Health Center. The film explores the link between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and lifelong health, a study done in partnership between Kaiser Permanente and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We will also have a post-screening panel discussion with the director and “Mental Health Partners from the community, moderated by Belva Davis, Bay Area Emmy Award winning journalist.

Confirmed panelists include:

•James Redford, Director and Producer of Resilience
•Claire Willhite, LMFT, Associate Director of Clinical Programs, Center For Youth Wellness
•Lauran Cherry, Educational Leadership Coach, Alameda Department of Education, and a San Francisco Link

This effort is focused on health advocacy relative to behavioral health and the immediate access needs of the Bay Area Community. Our ultimate goal is that the audience will walk away with a deeper understanding of how ACEs inpact them and their family members, and that they will know how to access resources that can support them in the healing process.
