COM presents documentary about homelessness
The College of Osteopathic Medicine will host a viewing of the documentary “Among the Discarded” on Thursday, April 27 at 6 p.m. in Room 124 of Asbury Hall at The University of Southern Mississippi.
Louisiana native and artist Trent Dion Soto spent 30 days homeless on the streets of LA’s Skid Row with only a toothbrush and GoPro camera. During that time, he immersed himself into the culture and interviewed people living on the streets. A Q&A session with Soto will follow the film. COM students will also present a brief homeless simulation.
Carey and USM students and faculty are invited to attend. Free admission. Donations of toiletry items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soap, deodorant) will be collected and donated to The Fieldhouse for the Homeless.
