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.
