"The Invisible Patients" Screening

"THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS"
Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
La Salle University School of Business Auditorium
723 North Wister Street, Philadelphia, PA

CE Credits provided for those who remain after the film for a panel discussion about issues raised in the film.

Please RSVP by Friday, October 7.  Parking is available in lot J located across from the School of Business or the Shoppes at La Salle.

 

THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS tells the story of Jessica Macleod, a nurse practitioner, and four patients she cares for in their homes in Evansville, Indiana.  Together they put a human face on some of the most urgent healthcare issues facing our nation, from the living conditions of the elderly poor and end-of-life care, to the soaring costs of hospitalization, complexity of insurance and over-prescription of opiates. 

Jess’s patients’ stories reveal the emotional and financial burdens created by our current system, and cry out for solutions.  THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS pulls back the curtain on a hidden, vulnerable population whose circumstances ask us to wrestle with not just healthcare policy, but as importantly, how to mend today’s fraying social fabric.
