Description

In November 2015, the Remote Area Medical free clinic event stopped in Florida for the first time ever. Over two days, nearly 1,000 Floridians camped out in cars, tents, and lawn chairs for the chance to receive medical care. For many, it was the first time they have seen any medical professional in years. The Florida Legislature’s refusal to close the gap has left thousands of hard working Floridians stranded with no options for comprehensive health coverage. ​ This powerful documentary will leave you with a better understanding of what our neighbors, families, and friends in the coverage gap are facing every day. It will also leave you inspired to join the fight for change on their behalf. ​ Be a part of the conversation by using #CloseTheFLGap on social media.
