day's workWe invite you to join us at our upcoming public health movie night and screening of A Day’s Work, co-sponsored by our Institute and the OHSU/PSU School of Public Health. Mark your calendar for Wed., November 8 from 4-6 pm at OHSU’s Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB 1A001) to watch this impactful documentary, and join us in discussion with producer Dave DeSario. This free event is open to all faculty, students, staff and community members. RSVP now on Eventbrite.

This 2015 documentary shares the story of 21-year old Day Davis. Ninety minutes before he was killed on his first day of work as a temporary employee, he texted a picture of himself to his girlfriend. He was excited for his future. The film shares how his sister, then 17-year old Antonia, searches for answers. A Day’s Work reveals troubling issues that led to Day’s death, and that threaten the safety and health of other American temporary workers.

Our Institute, demonstrated through the work of the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center and Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (OR-FACE) program, recognizes the significant workplace risks that exist for many temporary workers. Our Institute together with the OHSU/PSU School of Public Health, join other public health institutions, colleges, and worker advocates across the nation committing to learn from this tragic and personal story. This free event is open to students, workplace and temporary worker advocates, and community members.

We hope that you will join us. Please do RSVP on the Eventbrite event page.
