ABOUT THE FILM
“Rx: The Quiet Revolution”
A staggering 50 percent of American adults
suffer from a chronic disease such as diabetes,
heart disease, obesity and arthritis—and one in
four has two or more chronic health conditions.
Across America a quiet revolution is happening
in medicine. Physicians, nurses and other health
care professionals are placing the patient at the
center of their practice and transforming the
way medical care is delivered, while lowering
costs and improving outcomes.
