Local Nurses Help 'Sicko' Heal the System 

A national campaign event hit Memphis Friday night, in sync with the opening of Michael Moore's new movie Sicko.

A group of Memphis nurses from the National Nurses Organizing Committee/California Nurses Association lined up medical professionals to talk to moviegoers about how to solve the nation's health-care system. The event, dubbed "Scrubs for SICKO" took place at Malco Studio on the Square. Memphis was among some100 cities with events tied into the movie debut.

Sicko profiles Americans with insurance who have been denied care by their insurance companies, describes how the health-care system is designed to benefit insurance companies, and give examples of industrialized nations with a national health-care plan.
