Event Details

After drinking radioactive iodine to kill her overactive thyroid, filmmaker Maggie Hadleigh-West catapults into illness only to run smack into the medical corruption that is shredding the fabric of American life in Sick to Death! Hadleigh-West exposes her own disturbing, yet determined, thirty-year struggle to regain her spiraling health. Through her research she uncovers the medical corruption and negligence that obscures medical practice – only to find yet another disturbing personal revelation. Sick to Death! is both a call-to-action and a quirky film, which seeks to understand and change this disturbing medical reality.
Director Maggie Haleigh-West will be in attendance.

Admission $10
Sick to Death! | July 22 @ 3PM | Asian Arts Initiative – 1219 Vine Street, Phila, PA
