‘Partners in Healing’ film and discussion shows Saturday

South Peninsula Hospital and Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic present “Partners in Healing: Integrative Medicine for Beginners.” A documentary by Mary Katze and Affinity Films, it provides an overview of many options of integrative medicine for breast cancer patients — newly diagnosed or long-term survivors — as well as anyone wanting to empower themselves with active healing. Part of a statewide tour, the film shows at noon Saturday, Feb. 3, at the Homer Theatre.

A screening will be held this summer in Seldovia on June 8.

A panel discussion is held following the Homer screening that features cancer patients, doctors and wellness providers. Speaking are Debi Poore, diagnosed in June 2017 with breast cancer; yoga teacher and healer Anna Raupp; essential oils expert Joyce Turkington; Dr. Robert Downey, a functional medicine practitioner; and massage therapist Sarah laQue. While “Partners in Healing” includes local cancer patients, Katzke said “… this film isn’t just about cancer.” She said the film is intended to provide anyone enduring a health care crisis with empowering information, to give them a stronger sense of control during what can be extremely difficult times of illness and treatment.
