On September 20, 2013 at the exclusive private media industry club, SoHo House in West Hollywood; our hosts screened “The Right to Heal” to over 50 media and industry insiders seeking to understand the social relevance and need for global essential surgery in helping the world's poorest by increasing global access to surgery.
The host committee Kerry Brown, Stacey Sher, Jay Faires, and Emily Greener assembled a personalized guest list who welcomed Producer and Director, Jaymie Ang Henry who imparted the film's mission and vision. She spoke of the need for essential surgery and anesthesia including the need for the proper equipment to make surgery accessible.
Following the screening, the guests participated in a lively Q&A with a robust discussion and brainstorming on how the media and lay people can be involved in framing the message about essential surgery. We received much praise and welcomed feedback about the film, which was appreciated and will be applied as we continue to grow the film with our plans to include stories from around the globe.
Several interested parties have been in touch with R2H and will be moving forward in support of our film and movement. We are grateful for the opportunity to reach this illustrious community who has shown such willing support. Thank you to Kerry, Stacey, Jay and Emily for a successful and entertaining evening!
