The changing face of medical care is topic of documentary

The changing face of medical care in the last 50 years has led to both benefits and consequences, including patients falling through the cracks. Patrick O’Connor is an award-winning filmmaker whose heartbreaking but informative documentary, The Invisible Patients, focuses on one home health nurse and four of her chronically ill patients.  Essential viewing for all who wish to go beyond the headline soup informing today’s national healthcare conversation. The documentary will be shown Thursday, March 30 at 6 p.m. at the Bay St. Louis-Hancock County library. No reservations required.
