The movie Code Blue, Redefining the Practice of Medicine will be shown at South Bay Adventist Church on May 18, at 3 p.m.
The film, created by Marcia Macado, follows infectious disease specialist Dr. Daray Stancic, as she copes with her own multiple sclerosis diagnosis by founding one of the first lifestyle medicine practices in the country.
In the film, Stancic introduces physicians and scientists who are making changes in our healthcare environment and empowering those with chronic diseases to stand up and reclaim control of their health.
The film presents the hurdles to the proposed shift: antiquated curricula in medical schools, confusion in the media, inadequate government policies, and the underlying influences of the pharmaceutical and food industries.
A 30-minute plant-based cooking demonstration will take place after the movie screening with free food samples of the recipes that were demonstrated.
Admission is free, but please register at www.SouthBayChurch.net or call 310-214-3123.
South Bay Adventist Church is located at 401 S. Prospect Ave. in Redondo Beach.
