Escape Fire Advance Screening

In the developed world, the average per capita cost of healthcare is $3,000.In the U.S., it’s around $8,000.

Doctors and med students, we know our patients are struggling in the current healthcare system. That’s why we want to invite you to:

A Free Advance Screening of the Award-Winning Film

Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare

followed by a discussion of how we can advocate in Georgia!

Wednesday, September 19th at 7-9pm

Claudia Nance Rollins Auditorium
Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University
1518 Clifton Rd, Atlanta, GA

Light appetizers and soft drinks will be served.

RSVP: Jeffrey Holzberg at [email protected].

Emory will join over 50 different medical schools around the country hosting a screening of Escape Fire, a film that not only highlights the inefficiencies and misaligned incentives of our current healthcare system, but also opens a dialogue for ways to fix it. Escape Fire has already won numerous accolades, including Official Selection at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. *AND* we just learned Pamela Ross, one of the featured physicians in the documentary, will be joining us for the event!

After the screening, Doctors for America & HealthSTAT will provide a brief policy update on Medicaid Expansion in Georgia, why it’s relevant to you, and how you can advocate for a more equitable system in a state that desperately needs it.

We hope you’ll join us and share this invitation with others who might be interested!
