Exclusive sneak preview of AMA-sponsored PBS documentary and announcement of AMA Research Symposium winners

Join us in the Hilton Anatole Trinity Ballroom at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 7, where we will feature a trailer for the PBS documentary supported by the AMA, Rx: Hope for Health Care in the U.S.: How frontline innovators are creating dramatically higher-value health care solutions.

The event will include a Q&A session with the award-winning director, writer, producer and cinematographer David Grubin, who has produced more than 100 films. The session will be moderated by Edward H. Livingston, MD, deputy editor of clinical content for JAMA.

The film looks beyond technology and medicine, and explores a health care model focused on medicine's fundamental mission: to promote health, prevent sickness and help people live long, productive lives. The documentary is a moving series of patients and caregivers, placed within the context of innovative practices. It explores how physician practices foster affordable medicine while encouraging intimacy, inclusion, trust and healing.

The documentary also looks at the hard facts about health care in America, placing these personal accounts within the context of the current American health care system. Rx: Hope for Health Care in the U.S. is scheduled to air on PBS in late spring/early summer 2015.

After the Q&A, the AMA Research Symposium winners will be announced followed by a reception with light hors d'oeuvres and beverages from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.
