Film Showing
This session examines the many facets of people's identities and personal characteristics that influence their health and well-being. By examining gender, perseverance, compassion, disability, self-acceptance, generosity, altruism, individuality, and love through the eyes of diverse individuals, we gain a better understanding of how we can improve our own well-being and that of those around us.
Session Objectives: Identifying different facets of identity and character and examining what makes people who they are.
