Paralyze Me

Tuesday, we're telling the story of Chloe Jennings-White. Chloe has a PhD in Chemistry, she holds several patents and she lives an active life. She is also in a wheelchair, but she's there because it's where she feels most comfortable. Chloe has a rare condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder, which means she's always felt that her left leg wasn't really meant to be part of her. We'll premiere a new VideoWest documentary about Chloe Jennings-White and talk to her – along with Columbia University psychiatrist Michael First – about BIID.

Watch the documentary short "Paralyze Me" which features Chloe Jennings-White at Films.RadioWest.Org
