ESCAPE FIRE - an amazing documentary on our HC system

Posted about 5 years ago by Deborah Wachtel


Join the Laura Mann Center for Integrative Health on May 7, 2014 for a cocktail reception (5:30pm) followed by a screening (7:00pm) of ESCAPE FIRE: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare at Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center, 60 Lake St, Burlington.  ESCAPE FIRE examines the powerful forces that maintain the health care status quo, a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care. The film tells dramatic patient and provider stories and follows leaders in the movement to transform health care at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. ESCAPE FIRE is about finding a way out and saving the health of a nation. The film has received numerous awards and was featured at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.  Free and Open to the Public.

We hope you will join the movement to explore ways to bring innovative "high-touch", low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our high-tech, costly health care system. The event will kick-off an initiative to expand and strengthen the on-going partnership between the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, The College of Medicine, Fletcher Allen Health Care and the Laura Mann Center as we continue to develop the platform for Integrative Health in Vermont that can reach all members of our community.
