AFFLUENZA:

 

EXTREME MATERIALISM & CONSUMERISM

 
The environmental implications of too
much stuff and what we can do about it.


PRESENTER:  Dr. David E. Corbin


SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1:30 - 3:00 PM
Nebraska Medicine-Bellevue
25th & HWY 370, Lower Level - Conference Room A

 

Is there such a thing as too much of a good thing? For example, plastics have been an almost miraculous and ubiquitous material, but have we gone too far? Just in time for the holiday season of giving (oftentimes stuff), hear from Dr. Corbin as he addresses the excesses in our society and proposes alternatives and possible solutions. The presentation will include videos and live music.                                                                                   


    Dr. Corbin is an Emeritus Professor of health education &
    public health at UNO. He is vice chair of the Nebraska
    Sierra Club and he is on the board of Nebraskans for
    Solar and the Public Health Association of Nebraska. He
    is a co-author of a high school textbook entitled Health
    for L
ife that has been adopted by many school districts
    throughout the country. He appeared on Late Night with David Letterman where he demonstrated how to make fitness and play equipment from items that people often throw away.


Green Bellevue programs are free and open to the public. Meet at Nebraska Medicine - Bellevue (2500 Bellevue Medical Center Dr, Bellevue, NE) in the lower level meeting room area in Conference Room A. You can park in the visitor parking lot and enter through the main door. Go down the stairs, make a "u-turn" and Conference A is down the hall on your left.
