ATSU-KCOM hosts showing of the film “Do No Harm: Exposing the Hippocratic Hoax” for mental health awareness initiative

A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) continued its efforts of mental health awareness, which began as part of the 125th anniversary project, by hosting the showing of the film “Do No Harm: Exposing the Hippocratic Hoax” on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018. The film is produced by Robyn Symon, a two-time Emmy Award-winner and writer, producer/director, and editor, and focuses on the importance of self-care, mental health awareness, and the national epidemic of caregiver distress. Though the film highlights physicians and student doctors, the message is relevant to all who serve as caregivers or provide support across the healthcare profession.

Margaret Wilson, DO, ‘82, dean, ATSU-KCOM, invited all first- and second-year ATSU-KCOM students to attend the showing early in the day. There was an evening showing for all community physicians, healthcare professionals, school counselors, behavioral health counselors, and emergency response personnel.

John and Michele Dietl, parents of the late Kevin Dietl, DO, ’15, ATSU-KCOM, shared their personal story to raise awareness about suicide among doctors and medical students and also addressed questions from those in attendance.

“When our son died, we knew we wanted to help, and we didn’t want this to happen to anyone else,” said John Dietl. “Since that time, a lot of positive changes happened, starting here at this program and spreading throughout the U.S.”

  1. Theresa Nguyen says:

    Is this presentation recorded for others to view online? If not, how can interested ATSU-KCOM students rotating out of state (AZ) watch this documentary?
