The University of Iowa Public Policy Center is proud to announce a free film screening of the character-driven documentary The Waiting Room, a film that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients.
Peter Nicks, the director, producer and cinematographer of the film, will hold a discussion afterward, moderated by Iowa Public Radio's Ben Kieffer.
This event is free and open to the public.
