The event takes place Thursday, April 18, from 6-8 p.m. in the J. Harold Harrison, MD Education Commons, McKnight Room, and will include a follow-up question and answer session with co-director Anna Moot-Levin.
The film follows three health care providers as they bring care to those in rural areas of northern New Mexico who are not only struggling with a shortage of doctors, but the devastation caused by the growing opioid epidemic.
After the film, attendees will have the opportunity to partake in a community forum addressing the challenges in rural health care and treating substance use disorder.
The film by Laura Green and Moot-Levin offers what they call a “visit with today’s country docs,” and shows the benefits of health care providers’ relationships with marginalized patients.
Seating is limited for this free event. To reserve a ticket for the documentary screening, register through Eventbrite or call Faith Kinard at 706-721-4065.
