A panel discussion will be held tonight, 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 16, at Zeitgeist (18618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.) to explore themes found in local filmmaker Maggie Hadleigh-West's documentary Sick to Death!, which had its world premiere at the New Orleans Film Festival on Saturday night. Based on Hadleigh-West's personal experiences with thyroid disease, the film explores the "complications, negligence and corruption" of the medical establishment as regards diagnosis and treatment of the illness.

In addition to Hadleigh-West, panelists include Dr. Kent Holtorf, founder of the National Academy of Hyperthyroidism; author and thyroid patient advocate Mary Shomon; Jeny Kherkher, Executive Director of the Holtorf Medical Group; and health chef and educator Jodi Brown.

Sick to Death! will receive an encore screening as part of this year's New Orleans Film Festival at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18 at the Ace Hotel. More information is here.
