Producer Jeff Hays and Director Bobby Sheehan recently received certificates of appreciation from National University of Health Sciences for their extraordinary documentary film,"Doctored." The film questions the medical monopoly and follows the chiropractic profession's historical struggle against a targeted campaign by the American Medical Association to discredit complementary and alternative medicine.
"I thought we were going to be making a movie," said Bobby Sheehan, after receiving the honor. "But I'm learning--more and more--that I am part of something much bigger than a movie. I feel like I have become part of an important movement that can actually help people and I couldn't be any prouder."
"Documenting the real efforts of you pioneers who actually fought the battles is comparatively easy work," said Jeff Hays in a letter to NUHS President Winterstein. "I can't thank you enough. I appreciate and value your recognition."
"Every health care practitioner from every branch of medicine
should make a point to see this film," says
Dr. Winterstein. "It should sound the death knell to competition, prejudice and exclusion between health care specialties, and make every chiropractic physician and DC student proud of the heritage given to them by those who fought tooth and nail for their right to practice."
If you weren't able to attend one of the nationwide screenings of "Doctored," the Florida NUHS chapter of the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) will be hosting a screening of the film Thursday, November 15th, at 6:30 p.m. in the new clinic, and the Illinois NUHS SACA chapter will show the film on November 19, at 7:30 p.m. in Room 139 of Janse Hall on the Lombard campus.
DVD copies of the movie can also be purchased online. This is one film you'll want as part of your permanent collection.
