SICK TO DEATH! w/MAGGIE HADLEIGH-WEST (5pm)
SICK TO DEATH!
2017. 98 mins
After drinking radioactive iodine to kill her overactive thyroid, 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. After seeing hundreds of doctors who either disregarded her symptoms, misdiagnosed or under treated her, Maggie discovers that her life-long thyroid problem was a fully understood medical issue as early as 1914, yet its been obscured by systemic medical corruption, pharmaceutical greed and physician negligence, leaving more than 750 million people sick and suffering world-wide.
Follow her as she brazenly 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.
