Adverb_BreakthroughThursday, May 19,1 PM
Maine Medical Center, Department of Medical Education
335 Brighton Avenue, 3rd Floor, Portland, ME

A unique educational performance that addresses the health care sector’s role in detecting domestic violence. Designed for health medical students and practicing health professionals.

Intimate partner violence and sexual assault affect nearly 32 million Americans annually. The health care sector constitutes the largest and single most underutilized means of prevention and intervention. Yet fewer than 10 percent of primary care physicians routinely screen patients during regular office hours.

Major Medical Breakthrough is a compelling call to action for the health care sector to examine its role in detecting and preventing violence in patients' lives. Two professional actors,  multimedia approach and the latest research combine to use the power of performance to make a difficult topic accessible o explore policy, protocol and applications.

Artists in Context is pleased to support Add Verb Productions by hosting a  reception following this performance. Add Verb's integration of playwriting and performance with exemplary health care practices represents the type of intersection and synthesis Artists in Context seeks to highlight and explore. There is limited seating for this 30 minute performance, which is followed by a discussion and reception so please reserve your seats  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
