"Fed Up" showing sponsored by Palmer Chiropractic Clinics

Palmer Clinics sponsor screening of ‘Fed Up’ Jan. 17

Did you know that, in 2012, Americans consumed an average of 765 grams of sugar every five days, or 130 pounds a year? The movie “Fed Up” sheds light on sugar consumption and the poor eating habits of the American public.

Join the Palmer Clinics for a special screening of “Fed Up” Jan. 17 in the National Geographic GIANT Screen Theater at the Putnam Museum.

The Palmer Chiropractic Clinics and the Putnam Museum have teamed up to bring an exclusive showing of “Fed Up” to the Quad Cities at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 17. The movie will be shown in the National Geographic GIANT Screen Theater at the Putnam Museum, and tickets are just $5, allowing entrance to the movie, museum and Science Center. There also will be vendors in the Grand Lobby area from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with interactive, informational booths to help families start a dialogue about sugar.

Seating is limited, so register after Jan. 1 by calling the Putnam at (563) 324-1933.

Additionally, DVDs of “Fed Up” will be sold via pre-order in the Davenport campus Bookstore for $10 (retail $19.99) until the event on Jan. 17. DVDs will be available at the event $10, and afterward for $15.
