The screening will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26 in the college’s Kingston Theater, located in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center. The event is free and open to the public. Those interested in attending are asked to preregister.

“All members of the extended SUNY Canton community are encouraged to attend,” said Associate Professor Christina Lesyk. “ The subject matter is directly relevant to many of our students, particularly students in Applied Psychology, Healthcare Management and Funeral Services Administration.”

All the Lonely People places a human face on the hidden epidemic of chronic loneliness and social isolation. Built on hope, prominent researchers share the latest interventions for individuals and communities and leaves audiences feeling empowered and reconnected.

The Clowder Group, the creator of the documentary, and the New York State Office for the Aging are sponsoring several screenings of this documentary across New York State. Writer and Director Stu Maddux and Producer Joe Applebaum will be at SUNY Canton to give a talk and host a question-and-answer session following the film.
