The New York Academy of Medicine Section on Nursing is proud to sponsor a screening of Defining Hope, a new documentary by Carolyn Jones. Defining Hope weaves the stories of patients with life-threatening illness, and the nurses who guide them as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for and how that hope evolves. It is about optimism and helps us define what "quality of life" really means. Following the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A with filmmaker Carolyn Jones moderated by Barbara Glickstein, RN, MPH, MS. 

Barbara Glickstein, RN, MPH, MS, is a public health nurse, health reporter and media strategist. She is director of Communications, Media Projects at the George Washington University School of Nursing. Barbara is a Fellow of the Academy and member of the Nursing Section.

Carolyn Jones is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker who specializes in telling stories that shed light on issues of global concern. From people “living positively” with AIDS to omen artisans supporting entire communities and nurses on the frontlines of our healthcare system, Carolyn Jones has devoted her career to celebrating invisible populations and breaking down barriers. Her most widely acclaimed book publications include Living Proof: Courage in the Face of AIDS and The American Nurse, which led to a feature documentary included in the U.S. State Department's American Film Showcase. Carolyn Jones Productions is the same team that created The American Nurse Project, an award-winning photography book and documentary film celebrating nurses.
