We recently sponsored a student group that received 4th place honorable mention in the Planet Forward Storyfest Competition. The group, comprised of Jackson State University and Tougaloo College students, was a joint project with the two schools. Our own Dr. Wilma E. Mosley Clopton was invited to participate in the collaborative project by Dr. Shameka Cathey of Tougaloo College. Dr. Clopton helped the students create a film that discussed the innovative measures being taken in Mississippi to improve the general health of the State’s population. The documentary, “Save our Farms, Save our Families”, examines the correlation between the decrease in family farms and the increase in health issues.
