HumanDocs Film Series: Remote Area Medical is in the past.
Lipscomb University's HumanDocs Film Series,
Remote Area Medical
Wednesday, Nov. 6, 8:30 p.m.
Highlighting the need for medical mission work within the U.S, HumanDocs presents "Remote Area Medical," a film in which directors Jeff Reichart and Farihah Zaman document the annual two-day “pop-up” medical clinic put on by the non-profit Remote Area Medical (RAM) in the NASCAR speedway in Bristol, Tenn. Instead of focusing on health care policies and systems, "Remote Area Medical" puts the spotlight on people and the unlikely community that arises in the same place each year.
"Remote Area Medical" has won the Audience Award for Best American Indie at the 2013 RiverRun International Film Festival, and the 2013 Nashville Public Television Human Spirit Award at the Nashville Film Festival.
A post-film panel discussion will be held with panelists:
Kate Payne, CEO, University Community Health Services
Dr. Bruce Wolf, founder, Dispensary of Hope
Dr. Parker Panovec, medical director, Faith Family Health Center
Nathan Owens, Lipscomb pre-med undergraduate
Beth Youngblood (moderator), executive associate dean, Lipscomb School of Nursing.
This selection of the HumanDocs Film Series is presented by the Lipscomb School of Humanities within the College of Arts and Sciences, in partnership with the Lipscomb School of Nursing, the Nashville Film Festival and Nashville Public Television.
