The enthusiastic response to our film,
"In Our Right Mind," has been immensely gratifying—affirming the power of narrative and the hunger in our communities for information around health and health disparities.
The current pandemic has brought home a sense of urgency on these issues. Going forward, our mission is to use the power of narrative and this film to educate and bring awareness to the issue of dementia in our communities.
