The Theory of everything + Talk
This year, Nijmegen will host the 3FM Serious Request ‘Glazen huis’. The chosen charity of 2023 is the ALS Netherlands Foundation. In this context, we will screen The Theory of Everything in LUX on 20 December. After the film we will discuss the disease ALS with 2 members of the ALS treatment team at Radboudumc. Margie Alders will moderate this conversation.
The Theory of Everything is the story of the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking. While studying at Cambridge University in the 1960s, he falls in love with art student Jane Wilde. However, his future dreams fall apart when he is diagnosed with ALS.
Talk about ALS
The ALS treatment team at Radboudumc consists of a rehabilitation physician, physician assistant, physiotherapists, speech therapists, dieticians, occupational therapists, psychologists and social workers. At Radboudumc they are responsible for the treatment and guidance of people with ALS or the related diseases PLS and PSMA. Every week they see people with these muscle diseases, together with their loved ones, during their consultation hours. They work closely with other healthcare providers such as GPs and home care workers.
This program is a collaboration between Radboudumc, InScience and LUX. The ticket proceeds from this film screening will go to the ALS Netherlands Foundation.
