Film Screening & Moderated Discussion: The Bleeding Edge

You are here

Mon, March 18, 2019, 7:00pm
Forum Hall, Palmer Commons

In THE BLEEDING EDGE, Academy Award nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE HUNTING GROUND) turn their sights on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily.  Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us?

The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion.

Moderator:    Raymond De Vries, PhD
