The 2015 short film, Vanessa Goes to the Doctor, turned LGBT cultural competence training on its head, changing the way healthcare providers understand and treat their LGBT patients all in 8 entertaining minutes. Please come to a special screening of Vanessa and a fundraising kickoff for the production of three more films for this important and potentially life-saving film series.
Meet the filmmakers who will talk about why they used this approach and learn about what they plan to do in continuing this series.
 
Reception 7 PM

Screening 7:30 PM
