The pact by Jodi Picoult( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pact is the provocative true-life story of three friends from a rough Newark, New Jersey neighborhood. Rameck Hunt, Sampson Davis, and George Jenkins made a pact in high school to find a way to go to college and then medical school. The three doctors not only accomplished this, but they are now spreading the word to inspire other inner-city kids to stay off the streets and take the educational route to a better life. The Pact captures the pathos of the doctors' individual journeys, the integrity of their voices and the power of their rare friendship with each other. Their stories affirm the values that ultimately sustained and drove them: courage, tenacity and faith. This remarkable film pays tribute to the life of the mind and its power to turn dreams into reality

NED : no evidence of disease( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No Evidence of Disease (N.E.D.) follows an unconventional rock band made up of six GYN surgeons, each passionate about music and each outraged by the wall of silence surrounding their field. The band's name comes from the words every patient dreams of hearing: "No Evidence of Disease". Interweaving the harrowing experiences and stunning courage of women, devoted families, and dedicated doctors, this documentary takes an alternative approach to a difficult topic. While the record levels of public awareness and research funding for breast cancer are to be celebrated, "below the belt" cancers somehow remain taboo - a situation that directly kills through fatal misdiagnoses and delays. Of 90,000 women diagnosed with a GYN cancer every year, 30,000 will die. Yet, despite these cancers regularly claiming the lives of mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and partners, GYN cancer research receives a shockingly tiny fraction - not even 1% - of what goes into big-business breast cancer research. Even penile dysfunction and Viagra get more attention. No Evidence of Disease is set to trigger a sea change in cancer funding and awareness, giving a loud and clear voice to the full extent of women's health needs. As music and medicine join forces in the fight for life, our surgeons are transformed into rising rock stars, while their patients and loved ones jump on the train, infusing the struggle for survival with heart, hope and rock 'n' roll
