A Teachable Moment

A Teachable Moment tells the story of four stroke survivors searching for their new normal. A call to action for everyone, A Teachable Moment is dedicated to describing the science behind strokes, offering lifestyle choices to lower risk and empowering viewers with the knowledge that the disease is preventable, treatable and beatable.

Discussion leaders Heidi Menocal, a stroke survivor, and Jutta Brettschneider, an occupational therapist with a long and multinational practice, will share their experiences and answer questions.

This month’s program is sponsored by Utopia Film Festival, which aims to promote a better type of world while looking at the challenges which may impede utopian goals. For more information, contact Frank Gervasi, 301-474-7680 or .
