Join a special UCSF-only film screening and panel discussion on “A Place to Breathe”--a film about immigrant and refugee health care practitioners and patients, and the innovative clinics that provide integrative health care alongside other strategies to address trauma and support resilience. “A Place to Breathe” focuses on two health clinics that serve low-income immigrants, Street Level Health Project in Oakland, CA, and Metta Health Center in Lowell, MA.
This event includes two parts. Registered participants will receive a link to view the film independently approximately two weeks prior to the event. Then, on January 26, participants will join a live, virtual panel. Please watch the film prior to joining the discussion. Click here to register on Zoom and receive the link to the film.
Panelists will include the film director and practitioners from the clinics featured in the film:
Responding to trauma and supporting resilience are important topics in both clinical care and research. This film focuses on integrative health care and culturally responsive care in immigrant and refugee communities, topics whose importance has been underscored by both the ongoing COVID pandemic and continuing racial/ethnic inequalities in chronic disease outcomes.
This event is sponsored by the Mount Zion Health Fund.
Register on Zoom to receive the link to screen the film as well as the link to join the meeting.
