Due to the coronavirus outbreak, this event has been postponed. Information about a rescheduled date will be shared as soon as it is available.

As part of its 25th Anniversary celebration, the Berman Institute is proud to present “Expanding Our Conversations: Films that Underscore Important Issues in Bioethics,” a series of documentary film screenings followed by panel discussions of the important bioethical issues they raise. A complimentary reception with wine and cheese precedes each screening.

“In Our Own Hands: How Patients Are Reinventing Medicine” opens with an urgent question asked by desperate patients and their families: Can new technologies help us treat and prevent the most alarming and perhaps understated health threat that we face? The feature documentary, filmed over nine years, shows viewers the birth of the “Citizen Science” movement, and introduces a few of the courageous, imaginative individuals who are ushering in a new age of Digital Medicine. This film will change the way you think about illness and how we can stay healthy.
