Sports and Society

March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

With March Madness underway, we will take a look at the prominent role sports play in American society. From billions spent on college athletics and taxpayers footing the bill for arenas and stadiums, to the sports concussion crisis and the ever-expanding issue of sports gambling, we will examine why sports are so important to our culture.

Featuring Dr. Pete Edwards, co-owner of the Columbus Crew SC, and Gene Smith, director of athletics at The Ohio State University. Moderated by Ann Fisher, host of All Sides with Ann Fisher on 89.7 NPR News.

The event starts at 6pm with refreshments and registration starting at 5:30pm.
