This event is presented by the NYU Grossman School of Medicine as part of International Health Month.
Join us for a panel discussion of the award winning documentary Oli Otya? Life and Loss in Rural Uganda, with the Director and physicians involved in the documentary. Oli Otya? tells the story of a team of palliative care nurses from a small hospital and volunteer doctors from the U.S. who care for villagers with little access to medical treatment, where pain and suffering are often endured rather than relieved, and where people with life-threatening illnesses turn to traditional healers-herbalists, bone setters and witch doctors- hoping for a cure.
