Save the date! A local private film screening of the independent film “Do No Harm” is being held on Tuesday December 11th, 2018, from 6-9 p.m. at the Jacobs School of Medicine M&T Bank Auditorium.
It is a free event thanks to multiple sponsors (acknowledged below). The film is about the alarming rate of medical student and physician suicide and the factors contributing to this epidemic. Unfortunately this reality is too often left unaddressed or swept away given the taboo nature of the topic. Too many of us have been touched by this epidemic. Burnout is real and suicide is preventable.
You are invited to break through this taboo and start the discussion. Let’s come together and get this conversation out in the open so we are more likely to support each other. A panel discussion will follow the film, and refreshments will be served. Please share the invitation with those you think would benefit from being a part of this.
And a huge thank you to the following sponsors for making this a free event (what an amazing local group of physicians that stepped up for such an important event!):
