Long Wharf: Global Health and the Arts Symposium

Long Wharf Theatre's 5th annual Global Health and the Arts Symposium takes place Thursday and Friday at the 222 Sargent Drive theatere, and will focus on obesity issues, the same subject as its current production, "January Joiner: A Weight Loss Horror Comedy," by Laura Jacqmin.

 Co-chairing the conference are David Scheer, president of Scheer & Company and a LWT board member, and Kelly Brownell, director of Yale's Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.

Among the dozens of speakers from academia, the health industry and public- service sector are Yale Provost and President-elect Peter Salovey, U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3, Brownell and LWT Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein.

Scenes from several other plays addressing the issue also will be featured. Info: www.longwharf.org
