Last night, Kupona joined with Gradian Health Systems and the International Collaboration for Essential Surgery (ICES) to host a screening of the documentary film “The Right to Heal.” This film, directed by the newest member of Kupona Foundation’s Board of Directors, Jaymie Henry, M.D., makes the case for improving access to basic surgical procedures in the developing world. Back in April, we were extremely fortunate to have Jaymie and her crew visit CCBRT to film our work. We are extremely excited to be a part of this project.
“The Right to Heal” will continue to film in various locations over the course of the year, and Kupona hopes to host another screening of the final product at a later date. For now, you can check out the teaser clip below and get involved in the movement at http://therighttoheal.org/.
