This year, NoHLA is celebrating 20 years of working to improve access to health care for all Washington residents and fighting to make health a human right. First up, NoHLA’s Health Care at the Movies features The Providers, an award-winning documentary, followed by a panel discussion with local leaders that explores the challenges low-income and rural families face while trying to access health care.
While the event is free, donations to support NoHLA’s advocacy are encouraged.
The Providers, a documentary by Laura Green and Anna Moot-Levin.
Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows healthcare providers who work safety-net clinics that offer care to all who walk through the doors, regardless of ability to pay. With intimate access, the documentary shows the transformative power of providers’ relationships with marginalized patients who would otherwise be left out of the healthcare system.
After the short film, we’ll host a panel discussion, featuring:
Janet Varon, Executive Director, NoHLA
Aaron Katz, Principal Lecturer, UW Department of Health Services
Laura Green & Anna Moot-Levin, Directors & Producers, The Providers (via Skype)
This event is co-sponsored by the Social Justice Film Institute and the Latino Center for Health at the UW School of Public Health.
