SIID Global Health Group in collaboration with Students for Global Health, are delighted to announce the upcoming film screening of The Legacy of Menla (Dir. Adam Miklos, 2016).

The Legacy of Menla
(Dir. Adam Miklos, 2016)

Monday 29th April, 5:30pm, Diamond Lecture Theatre 5

With an accompanying talk by the director, Adam Miklos.

The Legacy of Menla tells the tale of three Indian women diagnosed with cancer who, flouting the wishes of their friends, families, and doctors, eschew Western medical advice to instead follow an ancient form of treatment: traditional Tibetan medicine. Although it does not always promise a cure, Tibetan medicine, one of the world’s oldest medical traditions, does offer the possibility of a new perspective in the face of death—and in this case, forever alters the lives of three women and their families.
