I am a freelance producer working on a short documentary and I would like to speak to anyone who has ever bought fish or animal antibiotics because they could not afford to see a doctor.
All experiences are welcome, but please let me know if you are in the New York Area and would like to participate in this documentary. Whether you are a student, part of the 99%, parent or disenfranchised individual, I'd love to hear your story!
The project will be part of a series of New York based human interest pieces that provide a microcosmic example of a larger issue; in this case the use of fish or animal antibiotics to treat human illnesses is potentially the result of increasingly unaffordable healthcare or to stockpile for a for a potential shortage in the future.
