 A Day at the Races, A Night at Frankenstein’s Castle
 Sunday, May 22, from 11am
Speaker Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg
Included with Admission

 A Day at the Races and Young Frankenstein: Two films released 37 years apart
but united by remarkably similar senses of humor fueled by a uniquely Jewish
perspective on mad doctors and mad love. The central characters of both movies
blend predictable feelings of persecution with a healthy irreverence for
convention and a disregard for stuffy authority.

Join another Jewish doctor named Arnold T. Blumberg as he fills you in on some
of the fun behind-the-scenes anecdotes that make the Marx Bros.’ A Day at the
Races and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein two of his all-time favorites in the
annals of Jewish movie medicine.

 Schedule for the Day:
11:00am – Screening of Day at the Races
1:00pm – Lecture with Dr. Blumberg
2:00pm – Screening of Young Frankenstein

“The conditions in which we live and work …” In Baltimore, these conditions
are often bleak-often deplorable. These are the conditions that perpetuate
yawning gaps in health care access and efficacy and in large-scale community
health outcomes.

In this talk, Dr. Perman will address the social determinants of
health-education, economic stability, personal and public safety, housing and
transportation, social supports and cohesion. He’ll discuss how anchor
institutions-like the University of Maryland, Baltimore-can help remediate the
grave disparities we see in the health of populations.
