I wrote last week about the screening of Healthy Town Detroit at Sheila Johnson’s Market Salamander in Middleburg, Virginia. For those in the District who are interested, Bill Couzens, Founder of Less Cancer and Holli Thompson, the Healthy Town Detroit Host and Founder of Nutritional Style will host another viewing on The Hill this Friday, July 2nd from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. in 2168 Rayburn House Office Building (the Gold Room)
Healthy Town Detroit is the first film in a series focusing on social entrepreneurs in communities throughout the United States. The documentary covers organizations working to bridge the numerous environmental health gaps in Detroit through prevention. The film features Earthworks Urban Farm at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, Local Motion Green, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, the Kresge Foundation, and Kids Kicking Cancer. The film series is part of the New Healthy Town Campaign from Next Generation Choices Foundation known for their Less Cancer campaign. Next Generation Choices Foundation’s first project was to reduce harmful pesticide exposures in Virginia Schools. The organization was recognized for its collaboration with the State of Virginia on recommendations to reduce pesticide drift from health effected communities – primarily schools.
Healthy Town features on camera contributor, Holli Thompson of Nutritional Style. Holli is a nutrition coach who has dedicated herself to the study of achieving health through nutrition, and is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor. She has trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, accredited by SUNY Purchase College, and Cornell University.

Thompson a former Vice President with Chanel has become a Nutrition Stylist to corporate, community and business leaders who understand that health, energy and focus is their most important asset.
For those on The Hill interested in issues of nutrition, obesity, and cancer, I highly recommend that you attend this event. Light fare will be served.
