A Change of Practice

2019 / USA / 29 Minutes / Jennifer A. Berggren

Film Synopsis

“A Change of Practice: Leadership in Medicine for the Underserved” is a half-hour documentary film that follows third- and fourth-year LMU students as they help residents in Flint navigate the lead water crisis and the insidious impacts of poverty. LMU students learn they are called to be more than physicians; their role is to change the practice of medicine. As one of the LMU students says in the film if they don’t advocate for patients, who will?

ComArtSci and School of Journalism students and faculty created the film. The College of Human Medicine and University Outreach and Engagement funded the project.
