Not My Child to be Followed by Discussion with
Filmmaker and Community Leaders
Hyde Park, NY – The Culinary Institute of America presents Not My Child, a compelling
short documentary about the opioid epidemic in the Hudson Valley and its effect
on our children, families, and the local community. The film is based on the
deaths of several young adults from the Hudson Valley in recent years. It will
be shown in the Marriott Pavilion on the CIA campus in Hyde Park at 9 p.m. on Tuesday,
February 5. Admission is free.
The screening will followed by a Q&A panel with
filmmaker Vivian Lanzarone, area health officials,
and other community leaders. The public is encouraged to attend this important
look at the crisis in our community that seems to simmer just below the
surface—until it directly affects you or someone you know.
“Opioid addiction is an equal opportunity offender,” says Christiane
Mueller, LCSW, director of the CIA’s Counseling & Psychological Services
(CAPS). “It could be affecting our students, our family, our friends, and
people in our local community.”
The panel discussion is scheduled to end at approximately 10
p.m. The evening is sponsored by the CAPS office at the CIA.
