Elmont, NY - February 22nd, 2014 - With National Minority Health Month approaching in April, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein invite residents to a VIP screening of Soul Food Junkies, a film by acclaimed New York documentary filmmaker, Byron Hurt.
 
Byron Hurt was inspired to make this film by his own family’s complex relationship with soul food. He was most inspired by his father, who despite facing a life-threatening health crisis, was unwilling to give up his high-fat, high calorie traditional soul food diet. Hurt’s hope for this film is to make it easier for families and communities to talk openly and honestly about the impact that food has on their lives and their health.
 
In addition to viewing the film, attendees have the opportunity to take part in an interactive panel discussion on preparing and enjoying healthy, soul food. Two VIP screenings, hosted by Nassau County Department of Health Minority Health Affairs, Nassau University Medical Center, Hofstra University, 100 Black Men of Long Island and Yes We Can Community Center will take place on:
