In this talk, Dr. Jennifer Segura shares documentary work she produced through the new program, Documenting Medicine at Duke.
Dr. Jennifer Segura, a fellow in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, focused her project on a common problem among adolescents: 9.3% of 17 to 19-year-olds develop substance dependence. Dr. Segura documented the stories of providers and one family at the Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment’s Intensive Outpatient Program. She recorded six one-hour-long interviews and edited them down into five minute clip, then returned to shoot photographs to mix with the audio. Her final project: a 20-minute video for a fundraiser for the Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment’s Intensive Outpatient Program, as well as a website (aiopduke.wordpress.com/), where families can learn about substance use and treatment options.
Documenting Medicine is a program at Duke University which provides Duke physician residents and fellows with the tools and training to use documentary as a way to get to know and better understand patients and their families, as well as care-givers. As part of this program, we host a monthly lecture by documentarians who have produced work in the medical world.
