Innovative 'soap opera' project aimed at teaching Spanish to health professionals

eractions, something a textbook alone cannot accomplish."

Casting calls were held and 26 actors hired from Miami, Mexico City, Raleigh, Durham and the Charlotte area. Filming on the larger project began in Columbia, S.C., at the end of May, with most action taking place in an old house converted -- through the magic of props and set design -- to a community health center run by Latino health professionals serving immigrants.

"During the filming in South Carolina, what stood out was how much the actors liked the script, and how they absolutely got into the story," Lorch said. "I can't tell you how many of them came up to me and said how much they appreciated the opportunity to be part of this."

Filming will continue in Chapel Hill and Carrboro from June 25 to July 8 with scenes taking place first at the emergency room at UNC Hospitals and then during a patient home visit and at a local dance club.

The completed film will be offered as part of an elective course in spring 2004 to UNC students in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, public health and social work. Negotiations are underway with Yale University Press to publish the program's materials.
