Finally, we will encourage attendees to attend our next event which will hopefully be held in March.

Code Black is a must-see documentary for any medical student, regardless of specialization. This documentary is about Emergency Room medicine, and specifically about the LA County Hospital’s C-Booth trauma center. Follow the eye-opening, real world experience of ER doctors as their ability to deliver quality ER care changes when they move from the Old County Hospital to the New County Hospital. Read BRI contributing blogger Derek Dye’s movie review or watch the trailer.
|As the first BRI event at St. Louis University, we spent the first 10 minutes introducing the group. Our mission, goals, and accomplishments so far were presented, and national membership was encouraged. We also expressed interest in working with other campus groups to organize events.We provided ice cream, cookies, and popcorn during the Code Black screening. After the film, we encouraged everyone to attend our next event on March 25th (a presentation by a local concierge doctor).Attendees included medical students as well as emergency medicine department faculty. A few students stayed after the event to discuss their shadowing experiences in emergency departments with what was portrayed in the film. The students agreed that Code Black gave an accurate picture of reality and expressed similar frustration with burdensome regulation.|
