The New School Student Health Services is having a film screening of the documentary “Rocío” by Dario Guerrero along with a discussion afterward. We will be discussing topics such s immigration, accessibility to health, dynamics of family and universities, and POC presence in universities.
Here is a brief description of the film from www.rociofilm.com:
Woven from footage collected over a quarter of a century, ROCIO is the story of a mother’s love and the American Dream.
When doting mother of three Rocio is suddenly diagnosed with terminal kidney cancer, her son Dario takes a leave of absence from Harvard College to come home and take care of her. Their battle against the disease leads them into the world of alternative medicine, where they find hope shimmering at a clinic across the border.
The catch: Pursuing this last chance at survival might mean giving up everything they’ve ever worked for.
This event is co-sponsored by USS, La XENTE and The Interdisciplinary Science Program at Lang

A Crossroads of Opportunity: Virtual Reality, Media Art, and Medicine Today
Thu, Nov 8, 2018, 06:30 PM – 08:30 PM
The Skylight Room (9100) CUNY Graduate Center
This panel will bring together healthcare professionals with artists and researchers using technology meant for healing and pain management in their creative practice. Healthcare is becoming increasingly technological in both its implementation and delivery as we are becoming more connected daily. New advancements in technology are aiding in the healing process and allowing us to understand how healthcare works both as a science and as social experience. This panel attempts to answer the question of how art and design can and are helping in the healing process. What types of interventions are possible through technology to achieve wellness on a personal, shared, and international level? Using the Internet, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Digital Games, and other connected interfaces, this panel will explore the future of this fascinating field and how it will evolve in the next 20, 30, 40 or more years to come. This panel will transport audiences into new potentials for collaborative experiences using technology and art into the world of medicine and beyond.
This event is free and open to the public, but please click here to RSVP.
