“I’m an accidental activist. I didn’t set out to change the culture of medicine, my chosen and beloved profession. I just found I had no choice but to try.”

Jessica Zitter M.D.

Critical & Palliative Care Specialist,
Author of Extreme Measures


A Front Row Seat in the Heart of the ICU

This Academy Award-nominated film takes us to the frontlines of a public health crisis that touches us all.

"Passionately and poignantly, Dr. Zitter reminds us that 'conveyor belts, regardless of their destination, are not meant for human beings.'"

-The New York Times
