Editor of COMPLICATED a feature documentary about kids with rare and complex diseases whose care is too complicated for mainstream medicine. Featuring stories of kids who are tossed around from specialist to specialist, abandoned and even accused of psychological disorders or of faking their illness. They often live with chronic pain and other complications, but are unable to get the help they need because they are considered too medically complex, or financially and legally risky—or, worse, because they or their parents may not be believed in the first place. COMPLICATED focuses on one of the most prevalent and representative of these conditions, a connective-tissue disease called Ehler’s-Danlos syndrome (EDS).
