The Hungry Heart is a documentary on prescription drug addiction and recovery in Vermont, following pediatrician Fred Holmes as he helps his patients in their struggle with this disease. Please see the attached press release for more information about the film.

It will be shown from 5:30-7:00pm following the conclusion of the previously published Review Course sessions on Thursday, June 12 at the Sheraton. There will be a panel for audience Q&A at the conclusion of the film. We expect Dr. Holmes and possibly some of his former patients to be there to answer questions.
