Free Screening Next Wednesday
Housecall Providers will host a free screening of the documentary titledThe Invisible Patients on Wednesday, March 22, at the Hollywood Theatre from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. A short presentation led by Medical Director Dr. Pam Miner will follow the movie and there will also be time for Q/A. Entry to the film is on a first-come, first-served basis. (The theater has 380 seats.)
THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS tells the story of Jessica Macleod, a nurse practitioner, and four patients she cares for in their homes in Evansville, Indiana. Together, they put a human face on some of the most urgent healthcare issues facing our nation, from the living conditions of the elderly poor and the lack of accessible end-of-life care to the soaring costs of hospitalization, and the overprescription of opiates.
The documentary pulls back the curtain on a hidden, vulnerable population whose circumstances ask us to wrestle with not just healthcare policy, but how to mend today’s fraying social fabric.

Hope to see you at the Hollywood Theatre on March 22!
