Film and Bioethics: Working Together to Expand Important Conversations

A 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics

As part of its yearlong 25th Anniversary Celebration, the Berman Institute’s documentary film series will heighten awareness of contemporary bioethical issues — in the broader Baltimore community and across the full range of Johns Hopkins University audiences. From March through May, the Institute will screen one film at the Charles Theater each month, free and open to the public, followed by a moderated panel discussion featuring filmmakers along with experts in the issues presented.
