Please join us for a free screening of the new "Code Blue" Documentary.
"Through the lens of filmmaker Marcia Machado, code blue reveals lapses in the current state of medicine and provides a common sense solution by featuring the practice of lifestyle medicine to prevent, manage and reverse chronic diseases. The film presents the hurdles to the proposed shift: antiquated curricula in medical schools, confusion in the media, inadequate government policies, and the underlying influences of the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Code Blue follows a passionate physician, Dr. Saray Stancic, as she reflects upon her journey from a multiple sclerosis diagnosis to wellness through her own adoption of lifestyle medicine. Dr. Stancic introduces us to expert physicians and scientists who are paving the way to make meaningful and necessary change in our healthcare environment, and in turn, empowering audiences to stand up and reclaim control of their health."
Q&A to follow with plant-based medical professionals, including Dr. Dana Simpler, practicing internist in Baltimore and co-organizer of the Eat Well Stay Well One Day Immersion (drsimpler.com), Integrative Physician Dr. Jyothi Rao of Shakthi Health and Wellness Center, and Dr. Kerry Foley, who practiced Emergency Medicine in the DC area (Greater Southeast Hospital, Georgetown University Hospital and INOVA Fairfax Hospital) for 30 years and works as a volunteer with PCRM on several projects.
