The Providers Documentary Film will be made available for screening in honor of National Rural Health Day from November 7 – 21, 2019 by access code only. Those who register to watch the film will also have the opportunity to register for a FREE NRHD special live web event hosted and facilitated by NOSORH featuring Anna Moot-Levin, one of the two filmmakers, as well as Matt Probst, PA-C, a provider whose story is told in the film.
The Providers have also equipped viewers of the documentary and NRHD web event participants with a comprehensive discussion guide, serving as an exceptional tool for engaging in meaningful conversations about the film’s central themes.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Where the award-winning documentary, “The Providers” is concerned, its value is immeasurable!
Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three health care providers and their patients and shows the awe-inspiring courage, commitment, and, tenacity that we know to be the real Power of Rural.
During this extraordinary National Rural Health Day session, NOSORH’s CEO, Teryl Eisinger, will lead an insightful and inspiring discussion with Anna Moot-Levin and Matt Probst, PA-C. Together, they will offer participants a window into the world of making the film, and discuss what they hoped (and has been) the outcome of telling the El Centro story.
Using the discussion guide, and by submitting questions in advance of the live session, participants can tap into the expertise of the film’s creators and the experience of a rural primary care provider facing what many would consider to be insurmountable challenges.
We’ll also explore how The Providers can serve as a script to help others understand how to approach telling their own stories as a means to guide informed policy, address the social determinants of health, and inspire collaboration, innovation, education, and more meaningful communication around initiatives that hold promise for creating healthier communities across rural America.
