    After Tiller is a deeply humanizing and probing portrait of the only four doctors in the United States still openly performing third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas — and in the face of intense protest from abortion opponents. It is also an examination of the desperate reasons women seek late abortions. Rather than offering solutions, After Tiller presents the complexities of these women's difficult decisions and the compassion and ethical dilemmas of the doctors and staff who fear for their own lives as they treat their patients. Official Selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

    The ubiquitous pink ribbons of breast cancer philanthropy - and the hand-in-hand marketing of brands and products associated with that philanthropy — permeates our culture, providing assurance that we are engaged in a successful battle against this insidious disease. But the campaign obscures the reality and facts of breast cancer – more and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, and face the same treatment options they did 40 years ago. Yet women are also the most influential market group, buying 80 percent of consumer products and making most major household purchasing decisions. So then who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns — the cause or the company? And what if the very companies and products that profit from their association have actually contributed to the problem?

    In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, Pink Ribbons, Inc. reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a "dream cause."

    Innovations in Primary Care

    Dr. John Muney is the founder of AMG Medical Group in Queens. This practice is based on the Direct Primary Care model - see http://www.dpcare.org/ - which might be described as "capitation for individuals."  This model is being promoted by many in primary care because it eliminates the insurance companies.

    Dr. Neil Patel is the Medical Director of Collective Primary Care for Iora Health. He has come twice to be part of Health Systems course and has discussed the amazing consequences of working in a well-funded capitated environment.  An EMR without billing?  Direct phone access to a physician 24/7? A kitchen in the waiting room? They claim their model of healthcare will change everything: http://physicians.iorahealth.com/

    The work of SOCHARA co-initiated by the Narayan's and their colleagues since 1984 has led to community health orientation of public health systems in India - particularly the communitiztaion of the National Rural Health Mission and simultaneously the development of the People's Health Movement at Centre and State levels that act as a countervailing power of health solidarity from below encouraging health for all policies at all levels. The interactive lecture will share experience of both these dimensions described as Yin and Yang of a new community health paradigm.
