Please join the Beloit College Health and Society department for a screening of the 2012 CNN documentary, Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Health Care.

ESCAPE FIRE examines the powerful forces maintaining the status quo, a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care. After decades of resistance, a movement to bring innovative high-touch, low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our high-tech, costly system is finally gaining ground. This film follows dramatic human stories as well as leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. ESCAPE FIRE is about finding a way out. It's about saving the health of a nation.

GENRE: Documentary
RATING:  PG-13
RUNNING TIME: 95 minutes

This event is free and open to the campus and community.
