“My goal with the film is to keep people from trying heroin,” said Dr. Forand.
Charitable Foundation’s video
discourages heroin use
St. Anthony’s anesthesiologist Joseph M. Forand, M.D., wants potential users to know heroin’s chilling effects. Dr. Forand is the executive producer of The Heroin Film Project, a 15-minute video that features interviews with local doctors, experts and recovering heroin addicts.
The film was produced with unanimous support and financial assistance from St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation’s Physician Ambassador Board, a group of 23 physicians who share the mission to improve the health of the community through fund raising and grant support. Produced by the Charitable Foundation and Pelopidas Media, the video also was funded in part by the Missouri Society of Anesthesiologists.
