Combine the useful with the pleasant? This is what Dr Jutras-Aswad and the University of Montreal are offering by inviting you to an edition of film and conferences on drug addiction. At a cost of 5$, the film conferences allow you to watch a film related to a health theme, which is followed by a conference given by a qualified expert who demystifies the theme of the evening and provides tools practices based on key scenes from the film.

Beautiful Boy, inspired by the memoirs of journalist David Sheff and his son Nic, paints a heartbreaking portrait of a family’s unconditional love and commitment to their son’s grip on drugs and his healing attempts. Following Nic’s many relapses, the Sheff face the harsh reality of drug addiction that can strike at any time. A short introductory lecture on drug addiction and its collateral damage will precede the viewing of the film and then, at the end of the evening, Dr Jutras-Aswad will review the film and discuss with the audience. The activity will be held online from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on October 8th.
