After the film, you will be invited to stay for a discussion led by a skilled facilitator.
You will be asked to fill out two questionnaires that take about 10 minutes each to complete (one before and one after the viewing). The entire event should take no more than three hours. You also will be asked to complete a very brief third online questionnaire, about 4 weeks after the event, with questions about living with cancer and your reaction to the video.
The screenings will take place Saturday, November 16th & Sunday, November 17th at 1:30 PM at the Paramount Center in downtown Boston. Each participant will be paid $50 and if needed, will receive a parking voucher for the afternoon.
Health care providers, cancer patients, cancer survivors, their families and members of the community are welcome to participate.
