"As a Nurse This Horrifies Me, As a Human This Shames Me."

Thousands of public health care professionals and students descended upon the Denver Convention Center in Colorado for the 2016 annual national conference of the American Public Health Association (APHA).

Hard To Believe was selected to screen at the APHA Global Public Health Film Festival at the conference as a featured session in the program on Monday October 31.

Following the screening was a lively Q&A discussion with Dr. Dana Churchill of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), Winston Liu, a chemical engineer in Wyoming who was tortured and blood tested in prison in China for his belief, and Kay Rubacek, one of the producers of Hard To Believe.

Many attendees signed petition postcards addressed to the U.S. State Department asking them to help stop the crime of forced organ harvesting in China. Some comments on the postcards read:

As a nurse this horrifies me, as a human this shames me.
