Family First Health to Offer Free Screening of “The Waiting Room”
Documentary screening to celebrate National Health Center Week.
YORK, PA (August 9, 2013)—Family First Health is proud to announce they will be hosting a free screening of the buzz-worthy documentary, “The Waiting Room,” on Tuesday, August 13 at York Little Theater. The doors will open at 5:00 pm, with opening remarks at 6:20 pm and the screening beginning at 6:30 pm.
THE WAITING ROOM is a character-driven documentary film that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American Public Hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients. The film – using a blend of cinema verité and characters’ voiceover – offers a raw, intimate, and even uplifting look at how patients, staff and caregivers each cope with disease, bureaucracy and hard choices.
This free screening is being offered in celebration of National Health Center Week 2013 (NHCW) to showcase the multitude of ways in which America’s Health Centers are actively changing, improving and innovating the health of their communities from August 11 – 17. This year’s theme is, “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Transforming Healthcare in our Local Communities.”
The screening is sponsored by CompuGroup Medical.
