Baby Feeding Law Group Ireland present: A private evening screening of Tigers
On Monday April 8th, Baby Feeding Law Group Ireland (BFLGI) are holding a private screening of the movie 'Tigers' in the Light House cinema in Dublin. Tigers is based on the true story of a former Nestlé baby milk salesman in Pakistan called Syed Aamir Raza (played in the film by major Bollywood star Emraan Hashmi) taking on the industry with the help of Baby Milk Action and IBFAN (the International Baby Food Action Network) when he realises that babies are dying as a result of his work pressuring doctors to promote formula. Trailer available: HERE
We are very excited that Syed Aamir Raza (who the movie is based on) is travelling from Canada (where he now lives) to Ireland to take part in a panel discussion after the movie screening. Joining him on the panel will be:
— Patti Rundall, Baby Milk Action UK,
— Professor Donal O’Shea, the HSE Clinical Lead for Obesity
— Dr Cathal McCrory, Research Assistant Professor, TCD
— Professor Roy Philip, Consultant Neonatologist & Paediatrician, University of Limerick Hospitals, and — Laura McHugh, National Breastfeeding Coordinator, HSE
Our host for this event will be Aoife Hearne, Registered Dietitian and well known as a leading nutrition expert on RTÉ One’s Operation Transformation. Aoife is a member of BFLGI and is passionate about the strengthening, protection and promotion of infant nutrition legislation in Ireland.
