THE WAITING ROOM is a character-driven documentary that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients.
CHMP is co-sponsoring two screenings in May of Pete Nick’s THE WAITING ROOM an award-winning film about health care told through individual stories of patients, providers and family members at a public hospital emergency room in Oakland CA. We showed the film at our Envision Health series last November to a riveted audience. If you missed it last November be sure to see it at a screening in May!
MAY 12 – The Schomburg Center in Manhattan – 4pm. There will be a Q&A after the film with Pete Nicks and health experts. There will be preventative health screenings available at the event and a table of healthy snacks.
MAY 19 – Rooftop Films in Brooklyn – 8pm. Along with the film there will be preventative health screenings available at the event and a table of healthy snacks.
