“City of Joy” for Diversity Movie Night

The Resident DEIA committee hosted the department for viewing “City of Joy,” directed by Madeleine Gavin. The film, “follows the first class of students at a remarkable leadership center in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a region often referred to as “the worst place in the world to be a woman.”

These women have been through unspeakable violence spurred on by a 20-year war driven by colonialism and greed.

Our takeaways focused on celebrating the joys and positives of our day-to-day. Remaining non-judgemental, and genuine, providing a safe place, and asking the patient what they need. We strive to continuously improve and advocate for our patients.
