Dr. David Barton Smith will moderate the viewing of the film Power to Heal, a documentary that tells a poignant chapter in the historic struggle to secure equal and adequate access to healthcare for all Americans. Central to the story is the tale of how a new national program, Medicare, was used to mount a dramatic, coordinated effort that desegregated thousands of hospitals across the country in a matter of months.
Dr. Smith is a Temple Professor Emeritus who wrote the book on which the documentary was based.
WHEN: May 1 from 5–6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Kiva Auditorium (located in Ritter Annex)
