Join the Sicko Reunion Wednesday


This Wednesday, June 29th, please join PDA and our allies at Healthcare-NOW for a very special online event. We’re sharing this message from Healthcare-NOW so you may mark your calendars and plan to join us.  

In spring of 2007, Michael Moore released a blockbuster documentary showing the extraordinary damage the U.S. healthcare system inflicts upon ordinary Americans. Story by story, SiCKO pulled back the veil of how ordinary illness and injury, when paired with deadly healthcare profiteering, leads to suffering, financial ruin, and even death. 

Donna and Larry Smith were two of the patients featured in the film. Donna remains deeply invested in the movement to secure healthcare justice as Chair of PDA’s Advisory Board and Co-Chair of our Healthcare Issue Organizing Team.

15 years later, we are bringing together the patients featured in SiCKO, whose extraordinary stories impacted Congress, shaped the Affordable Care Act, and helped to launch the modern Medicare for All movement. Join us to reflect on the impact SiCKO made and celebrate our victories over the past 15 years and the road still remaining to win a just healthcare system!

You can watch the live reunion at 5 PM PT/8 PM ET on Wednesday, June 29th on Facebook or our Youtube channel

If you have a question for our guests, please submit it here.
