The Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas (BMI of Texas) will host a free screening of the acclaimed movie FED UP on Monday, June 2, 2014 at Santikos BIJOU Cinema Bistro (4522 Fredericksburg Road, San Antonio, 78201) at 6:30 p.m. In support of the battle against obesity, BMI of Texas is hosting a private screening of this eye opening documentary which sheds light on the role of sugar in the food industry.
According to the movie trailer, “For the past 30 years, everything we thought we knew about food and exercise is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn't want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever.”
Attendance is free for the first 200 people to sign up but reservations are required. Please email supportgroup(at)bmioftexas(dot)com or call 210 615 8500 to make your reservation. Donations to The Obesity Treatment Foundation will be accepted on movie night.
