The Color of Care Screening
Science Museum Oklahoma with Lynn Health Science Institute and Oklahoma Public Health Association will host a free community health fair in conjunction with the screening of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions documentary “The Color of Care” on August 16 at 5:30p at the Oklahoma Science Museum. This event and screening of “The Color of Care” is possible through the support of the Smithsonian and Picture Motion.
The Color of Care” will be screened in the museum’s auditorium. The film chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare. COVID-19 exposed what had been long endured and understood: people of color do not receive the same level of care.
Community health organizations including Oklahoma City County Health Department, INTEGRIS, the Caring Van, YMCA, TSET, and others will be onsite to provide glucose, blood pressure, and eye screenings. The Oklahoma City Innovation District, St. Luke’s Community Market, and other community partners will be available to share fresh produce and health resources.
