The Program in Bioethics and Film is partnering this year for the second time with the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) to co-sponsor a day of medically themed film screenings at the Stanford Medical School.  The films explore themes of immigrant and underserved community healthcare ("Clinica de Migrantes"), deaf culture ("Two Worlds"), multiple sclerosis ("When I Walk"), and environmental health ("Painted Nails"). Directly following the screenings, an expert panel discussion will be held.  Panel members will include the film makers and Stanford medical school faculty including Dr. Gabriel Garica, professor of medicine and senior fellow at the Center for Innovation in Global Health.  All students are offered free admission, with valid ID, and admission to the panels is free and open to the public.  Further information regarding UNAFF and the schedule for this year’s festival can be found at http://www.unaff.org/2016/schedule.html

Join the new Health and Film working group!

Medicine and the Muse, Program in Bioethics and Film is proud to announce the initiation of a Health and Film working group, a formal community of medical students and faculty that share a passion for film and are actively involved in its production.  The mission of the group is to promote the intersection of film and health by: 1) holding regular film screenings and discussions open to all medical students and faculty and 2) organizing regular group meetings where members will share works in progress, from rough cut screenings to presentations of project concepts and treatments, and collaborate to support their completion.

If you are interested in being contacted about future screenings, please sign up HERE.
