What happens if you fall sick and are one of 47 million people in America without health insurance? CRITICAL CONDITION puts a human face on the nation's growing health care crisis by capturing the harrowing struggles of four critically ill Americans who discover that being uninsured can cost them their jobs, health, home, savings, even their lives.
WGTE will follow the national program with a Town Hall Meeting with local experts, physicians and people who are personally experiencing the health care crisis in their own lives. By raising awareness of the local problem, we hope to encourage more citizens to ask the hard questions: Who are the people in our area who are hardest hit by the lack of affordable healthcare? Where can those in need go for help? How can you take responsbility for your own health?
