Medical student’s documentary honored at international film festival
School of Medicine student Michael Otremba won the award for best documentary feature in the second annual NYLA International Film Festival.
Otremba’s film, “Twero: The Road To Health,” explores the practice of many Ugandan doctors of detaining patients who are unable to pay their bills. “Twero” means “right to health” in Luo, one of the languages spoken in Uganda.
