Dallas Buyers Club Screening
Thurs, April 3
3:00-5:00pm, MUB Theater II
Join us for a Screening of Dallas Buyers Club followed by a discussion led by AIDS Response Seacoast and UNH Health Services.
The film depicts the story of Ron Woodroof an electrician and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. Yet he will not, and does not, accept a death sentence. His crash course of research reveals a lack of approved treatments and medications in the U.S., so Ron crosses the border into Mexico. There, he learns about alternative treatments and begins smuggling them into the U.S., challenging the medical and scientific community. With a growing community of friends and clients, Ron fights for dignity, education, and acceptance. Event sponsored by UNH Health Services, AIDS Response Seacoast and Kidder Fund.
