The Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Nabholz Construction Services and the Arkansas Department of Health, will host three screenings of HBO documentary "The Weight of the Nation" on Wednesday, May 29, at the Chamber.
Nabholz Construction is featured in the four-part documentary series. The company implemented a wellness program six years ago, which has resulted in improved health for employees and below average increases in health insurance rates. "Weight of the Nation" also features interviews and case studies about the obesity epidemic along with testimonies from individuals and families struggling with the condition.
The series spotlights the facts and myths of obesity and explores how the public health issue affects the nation’s health care system.
Chamber members and employees of Chamber member businesses can attend the screenings at no cost. The sessions begin at 7:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and last for two hours.
Seating is limited to the first 40 individuals who register per session. To make reservations, email Lindsay Wygal at Lindsay@ConwayArkansas.org.
