The Hungry Heart is the winner of the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s 2015 Media Award
The Hungry Heart provides an intimate look at the often hidden world of prescription drug addiction through the world of Vermont pediatrician Fred Holmes who works with patients struggling with this disease.
Most importantly however, as the film progresses we begin to see the simple but profound connection that Dr. Holmes creates with each patient. The film shines a light on the healing power of conversation and the need for connection that many of these young addicts yearn for, but do not have in their lives.
This event is free and open to the public. No registration required
