The fight on B-12 deficiency doesnâ€™t sound like much to most Americans, but B-12 awareness ended up saving thousands of lives.
â€œSally Pacholokâ€ is a feature film about the ER nurse who was the whistleblower on the B-12 awareness campaign despite years of harassment and a gag order from her hospital about her raising national awareness.
Pacholok wrote the book â€œCould it Be B12?â€ in 2012 with her husband Dr. Jeff Stuart. Itâ€™s based on the events from 1990-2005 and changed the medical industry today. She has another book called, â€œWhatâ€™s Wrong with My Child?â€ on the market in a couple of weeks about B-12 deficiency in infants and children.
Latino-Review has an exclusive clip from the film. In this scene, Sally Pacholok (played by Annet Mahendru) confronts a nurse over lost test results at the hospital.
â€œSally Pacholokâ€ is premiering at the Washington DC Independent Film Festival tomorrow, February 28, at 7:20 p.m. and on Sunday at 11 a.m. It will also be playing at the LA International Womenâ€™s Film Festival on March 21st at 2:30 p.m.
